Jacko’s stay at Evans Head, NSW north coast

After leaving Melbourne on October 15, we meandered our way north, hugging the western side of the great divide through spectacular, but winding and steep terrain to Tenterfield, where we crossed to casino, and down to the gorgeous and largely unspoilt township of Evans Head, about 30km south of Ballina. This is our free camp at Black Springs on the way up.img_0396

The weather has been sensational and we haven’t been out of shorts and T-shirts since we arrived, a week ago.¬†We have enjoyed lots of long beach walks, sensational humpback whale watching from several headlands, much fresh deep water fish from the Co-Op, other great local produce, and the company of the many friendly people we have met in the park.

We are leaving tomorrow for 4 days at Woolgoolga, just north of Coffs Harbour
