Goolawah Community

During our southwards treks we always call in to visit and stay with our great friends Roger and Belinda at the Goolawah Community near Crescent Head. We always get to partake in terrific walks in and around Maria River National Park, this visit was no exception. On this occasion we walked across country to the coast. The total distance of the return walk was 12.7 km. You could say we were a little tired on our return to Goolawah Community but we had enough energy to down a few beers.

This was our last stop-over before we reached Goolawah Community. A large and well grassed free camp area behind the Shell Roadhouse at Halfway Creek, just 35 km south of Grafton. That is our caravan visible in the distant background. We are the only campers in  this photograph but we had many neighbours later in the day.

We had rain in the area a couple of nights previous to our walk and this meant we had to wade through water, sometimes above our knees, through about five sections of lowlands. Roger is leading with Belinda following then Lucas, a German visitor to Goolawah, then Judy.
