Kangaroo entertainment

Leaving Red Rock we wanted to stay in the Brooms Head area just north of Grafton and south of Yamba. We stopped in the scottish town of Maclean, (that has some lovely old buildings) to grab some lunch before heading to the coast.

Just before Brooms Head is a turn off to Red Cliffs and Lake Aragon on unsealed roads into Yuraygir National Park. I fell in love with the campground at Red Cliffs immediately - big gassy spots with campfires right next the beach and hundreds of kangaroos everywhere. It was $10 a night per person but no one ever came by for us to pay. The weather was overcast but it was still beautiful. After witnessing bit of kangaroo shenanigans and love as we set up the van we headed into Brooms Head to get some lunch .

We then headed off south to Sandon River whee there are a few little fishing s/beach shacks with the beach on one side and river on the other. At the river/beach is a national park campground where we found the perfect spot for a a future trip - right on the beach and overlooking an island you can walk out at low tide. No facilities apart from toilets.

Relaxing afternoon ( apart from the flies) back at Red Cliff reading . Tomorrow it is straight back home to Brisbane - 3 1/2 hour drive
