Up to Suffolk Beach and on to the Gold Coast

In pursuit of sunshine and a good beach to swim at, we took a quick trip up the coast to Suffolk Beach for a few days.

Nice little camp, walking distance to the dog beach, and it was a bit funny swimming in our togs while the locals were walking past in jackets! It’s not cold, people!

We headed from there up to visit our friend Mac at Cararra on the Gold Coast.

We street camped in his street which was a large quiet dead end still under development and just up the road passed Palm Meadows Golf Course and the Mecure Hotel. Lots of boats and vans are parked there, or in the golf club carpark or tennis club carpark so we didn’t look out of place. It’s a quick drive from there to Broadbeach, the train to Brissie or the GC Airport. I had to fly back to Sydney to speak at the Sydney Writers Festival, so I did that from there. Also popped down to Kingscliffe to see my friend Jo Sandhu author of Tarin of the Mammoths, who’d collected my Aurealis award for me in Perth, and have lunch with her. Kingscliff is a great little town. Big wide beaches, just starting to get that cafe buzz, and with a new foreshore park.
