Trip highlights

Where was the best view? Blue Mountains, Three Sisters lookout point.

Where was your favourite place/town visited and why? Close to call, Byron Bay for the surfing, atmosphere and incredible beaches, and the Blue Mountains for some of the best views in the world.

What was your favourite experience/activity & why? Finding Minnehaha waterfall in the Blue Mountiains was highly memorable. Great water, scenery and a lot of fun.

Top highlights? Surfing in Byron Bay. Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, Minnehaha Falls, hiking in Warrumbungle National Park and Brisbane nightlife.

Best café for coffee? True to the Bean – Katoomba, Blue Mountains.

Favourite pub/restaurant? The Yellow Deli, Katoomba.

Did you have a favourite holiday park you stayed in and why? Warrumbungle National Park; we felt in the middle of nature being surrounded by kangaroos, but the facilities were still great.

Can you share a recipe from something you cooked in the campervan? Mexican fajitas: chicken, capsicum, onion, Mexican spices, tortilla wraps. Mix everything together when cooking and add to wraps with salsa, cheese and sour cream. Mmmm.

What is your greatest memory of the whole campervan holiday? The sunset over the Blue Mountains at the Three Sisters viewpoint.
