Monday 6th September, (Brunswick Heads).
We only spent the 3 days on the Gold Coast as we only went there to visit Tony and Brenda, as we usually do on our way through.
We left the Gold Coast this morning with the intention of only going about 50k to a small town called Pottsville, on the coast south of Tweed Heads, but when we got there we did not like the looks of the park we had selected and the other one in town was booked out. We then decided to go on further to Brunswick Heads, where we are now, as this was our choice in this situation.
This town looks just what we are looking for on our trip south, a small sleepy town that will give the opportunity to relax, and there seems to be plenty to do in the area as far as sightseeing.
The caravan park we selected gave an option of water-view sites at an extra $3.00 per day, which we had decided to treat ourselves with one of them. When we arrived the staff gave us a list of sites available and to our, sort of, disgust the water-view sites had all views of the waterway blocked by trees. Because of this we took a normal site, and if the sites between the water and us do not fill up we have reasonably good water views anyway, what they are worth. There is another park in town with what could be better water views, but we chose the one we did because of affiliation with Top Tourist and offering discounts, all parks in town are owned by Byron council so are all of comparable quality.
