Thursday 5th November 2009, Forbes.
This is a nice caravan park we are in at Forbes, Country Club Caravan Park, and gives the impression that when built it would be one of the very few parks built by someone that has lived in a caravan, with sites being quite large, covered in fine blue metal for low maintenance and large grass areas around the sites. One of the only problems I can see is that the sites are that far apart it restrict the ease of meeting others as we are not as close as normal. While here we had the intention of visiting some of the National Parks and such for some bush-walking so a visit to the information centre was in order yesterday, but unfortunately the women running the centre on the day didn’t seem to know much about what the visitor wanted and we basically had to find the brochures ourselves. One place we wanted to visit the Back Yamma State Forest so it was on the agenda for today, but when we got there we found it only had forestry roads and no walking tracks as such, so consequently, apart from filling in a couple of hours 4 wheel driving, the trip was a waste of time. We did consider that this would be the case as we approached the area as there was no signage to get there, and this is normally a good indication that no one visits anyway, which definitely seemed to be the case. Oh well never mind there are a couple of National parks we are going to visit and with brochures on these giving directions we are sure we won’t be let down as we were today.
