28.09.2018 – On the road to Mullumbimby, New South Wales

Driving down from the mountains, past low level clouds and the scenery changes once again to more open fields and grazing country. Our journey was slowed by the 155.kms of major road works in progress between Woolgoolga and Ballina and costing millions. The project is massive. We passed many rivers and saw our first sugar cane crops. Finally, we arrived at the Mullumbimby Showgrounds to camp for the weekend. (“Mullum” to the locals.) Unfortunately we arrived as the Farmers Markets were finishing their morning sales. Judging by the crowds that were dispersing, it had been a popular market.
