Seal Rocks and Grandis / by Ethan Astall

Leaving port Macquarie we headed towards seal rocks for the night and set up camp in Yagon camping area. Upon arrival a few hippies perched alongside their ancient Hiace complemented us on Ace Vanturas set up. Without sounding like flogs we were both pretty stoked to finally be travelling in a van we’d both always dreamed about owning. We woke up to a couple of fun little waves at seals and treated ourselves to a roof top breaky. Bulahdelah isn’t home to much, especially since being bypassed on the highway. The local op shop only open two days a week, bloody spewing no bargains to be had that day. We carried on to the Grandis picnic area which houses the biggest Eucalyptus tree in NSW. A 75m flooded gum dwarves the bush land beneath it.
