Bargara Beach and Bundaberg Region

We've just spent a very relaxing few days at Bargara Beach Caravan Park - a really lovely dog friendly park.  The pet area is on grassed sites located opposite a large open treed and grassed area that both Timmy and Skye enjoyed exercising and socialising on with other doggie neighbours.  While we enjoyed socialising with our friendly neighbours (hello Jan, George, Lucas and Psycho (the dog! don't ask).

 Lunches and morning teas again featured - Casablanca is the No.1 recommended choice in Bargara and the cafe at Baltimore The Port Marina at Port Bundaberg was in a stunning setting with good food.

Skye & Tim were allowed to
lie beside us on outside tables.

We had a really good group of neighbours at the Bargara caraban park - Jan and George (and their twin jack russells Lucas and Douglas) who travel 8 months a year selling at Caravan Shows, Robyn and John and Sooty (the blue heeler) from South Australia, and 2 kiwis who travel over here for 8 months a year (they were a bit of a mobile disco and one evening at 10.30pm we had to ask them to turn the music down - found them discoing away in their caravan - NO COMMENT!).

We left Bargara Beach yesterday and encamped to Alloway Country Club where you are able to camp for a couple of days for only $10 per night (including power).  A lovely rural spot surrounded by sugar cane fields.  Quiet, apart from a couple of cane trains that went by around 10pm and a good home-style roast at the club for $13.

This evening they set the cane alight, just up the road.  Fortunately the wind was blowing in the opposite direction so we weren't smoked out.
