Another day of driving today. We did start the day with a bit of excitement though - Paddy lost his tooth! Nick also hurt his back packing up the tent, so our uneventful day, became slightly more eventful. The kids helped with the packing up of the tent and we managed to get back on the road.

Today we headed further south towards Sydney. Most of the day we spent in the car, We stopped at Nambucca Heads and had lunch on the beach. Our next stop was at John's River for a quick beer at the pub and an ice-cream for the kids. The kids also enjoyed the nice green grass outside the pub for a good wrestle and roll around.

Today we left Queensland and headed into New South Wales. We stopped in at Byron Bay and had a look around and also visited Cape Byron which is the Eastern most point of Australia. We continued down the road to a small town called Iluka on the Clarence River. What a great little town.
It's raining again - lots! We are staying with Jimmy again tonight, so we spent most of the day sitting and chatting and catching up. Later in the afternoon we headed down to the Gold Coast, near Mt Tambourine to see Laurie and David (Nicks uncles) and Jay and Morgan (Nicks cousins). Cal enjoyed playing the guitar with Morgan and learning a few new songs. It was great to see all the guys after not seeing them for around 2 years or so.
