ROAD TRIP MELBOURNE TO FRASER ISLAND (DAY 1)

We are headed for Fraser island and I am so excited. It has been 6 years since we have been here last. We are on the road for 1 month, camping the whole way except for a little bit of work in Brisbane. We are going with our 2 kiddies of course, a 3.5 year old and 5 month old. I will document the whole trip.

All loaded up


DAY 1

Melbourne > Shepparton > Narrandera > Forbes

Sunrise at Shepparton


At our breakfast stop at Nerrandera we found a great playground. The highlight was the flying fox but it had other great play structures as well.

Typical Australian country side
At Forbes we found a great free camp in the town by the river. It is run by the lions club and had a maximum stay of 48 hours. There are no facilities at the camp but a short walk to the day use area which has toilets, an undercover barbecue area with power and water. Just over the bridge is a super IGA which boasts prices that rival the large chains, and next door to the super market is a discount store (called Dave's Discounts I think) which stocks a large variety of camping, electrical, automotive, toys and other bits you would expect at a $2 shop. We like to support local small business where possible.

Brotherly love at Forbes
