We stayed in a caravan park on Main Beach, which was a nice enough location aside from the fact that we had a site right on the highway. The nights were particularly noisy. On Thursday and Friday we did Wet'n'Wild and Movie World respectively (more on this in another blog entry by Grace, Rose and Lily). On Saturday we went for a walk along the promenade and on Sunday we caught up with Cath and Grant.
On Sunday night we experienced uber gale force winds all night, which almost ripped the camping trailer to bits ;-)
We arrived at Bina Burra around lunch time, got our of the car, looked at the camp ground, got in the car and drove out of Bina Burra. Possibly the worst camp ground we have encountered and to top it up they were undertaking some excavation work for the duration of our stay. We were now tired, hungry and no where to stay....not a good combination.
To cut a long story short everything turned out fantastic. We ended up securing beach front 14th floor apartment in Rainbow Bay for three nights. The couple managing the apartments were lovely as they allowed us to also park our camper trailer in a secure undercover facility. The views of the beach and across to Surfers Paradise were fantastic and the kids loved the change of scenery and some home luxuries. The winds have persisted for the last few nights but it didn't bother us. If you're looking at staying around the Gold Coast you really can't go past Rainbow Bay.
We move on tomorrow and looking forward to spending three days around Coffs Harbour with Gary, Jen, Joe and Georgina.
