Australian Day weekend

Being a proud Australian I thoroughly enjoy Australia Day and the celebrations that take part on that weekend. This year we split our time between a day at Wollongoong harbour and then a nights camping.

On the Saturday I helped with the SES celebrations as they unfolded around the harbour foreshore. The day started early as we assited stall holders setup, this at times proving very frustrating. Later in the day we manned our own static display, encouraging people to join the SES before finishing the day watching the fireworks.

On Sunday we headed down to a place called Yadboro Flat for a nights camping, this area lies between "Pigeon House Mt" and "The Castle" on the Clyde River. We'd never been to this place before, but had heard alot about the area. Well upon our arrival we were taken by how many other people had come to share this beautiful place. 2 small camping areas border the river, the river had plenty of running water which we later swam in. The camping area only has pit toilets, but its free and peaceful. We spent our time relaxing by the river, under the shaded areas and going on a couple of drives further into the bush.

What a great way to spend Australia Day weekend
