We left Manly Monday and arrived in Port Macquaire tuesday evening after 8 or so hours on a coach! We are staying at a YHA hostel for four nights. We are jammy in that we have an apartment to ourselves over the road from the hostel. It has two floors, living room, big kitchen, two bathrooms and four bedrooms! Were sharing with another couple who checked out today, so its all ours now! We are staying here until Friday before heading up to Coffs Harbour where we hope to stay for a further four nights depending on how much we like it. After there probably onto Byron Bay.
Port Macquarie is a strange place, nice, but all spread out...so lots of walking. So far walked along the beaches (they have about 5/6) yesterday and today hired bikes and cycled 20k to a lighthouse on a cliff edge...great views but knackering as the route was up hill, down hill, then up hill and down again and so on! Rocky was not impressed! On the way back we stopped at Shelley Beach to cool off in the sea and chill for a bit before heading back.
Anyway bye for now and will update again soon.
Loads of love Gem and Rocky x x x
