Ban Ban Springs

After two months at home with the caravan in storage we felt the need to be on the road again. It is great living in Hervey Bay but we feel liberated living in the caravan at various free camp sites around Australia. We are so lucky that the South Burnett and North Burnett Regions are within a short drive from Hervey Bay. There are many interesting small towns and interesting places to visit. We will be travelling through the North Burnett Region on our travel towards Mount Isa, our eventual destination.

We arranged with our caravan storage hosts at Hervey Bay Caravan Park to pick up our caravan on the morning of the 8th December. Half an hour later we were driving to a Car Wash facility to freshen up the caravan exterior. All cleaned now the next stage was to load the caravan with food, clothes and lifes' other necessities like the Mobile Phone/iPod/Kindle battery chargers etc. As planned we had lunch at home, showered and all fresh now we departed Hervey Bay at 2PM.

We had a planned destination for the first night as we knew we would be leaving home after lunch. We headed for Ban Ban Springs. There is an extensive free camp there alongside The Burnett Highway. We shared the Rest Area with a couple of transports and two other travellers camps. One of whom was on the closing stages of a 12 month circuit of Australia. After a great sleep and breakfast we refuelled at the local Roadhouse and headed north on The Burnett Highway towards Wuruma Dam.

Early morning at Ban Ban Springs. All the campers are spread out around the large rest area.
