We got away about 9am from South Headland, Blackrock Caravan Park, and began the drive to Eighty Mile Beach. The drive took us about 6 hours including breaks and a head wind the whole way. I did pull up at a petrol station and a lady came over to the car to tell me that they nearly ran up the back of me when we were turning into a parking bay as there were no break lights or indicators on the trailer! Col had a look and found that a rock had bounced up and smashed the wiring on the trailer. Col tried for a while to fix it but in the end we decided that I would drive in front of him and communicate via the radio for turning and stopping and he would look at it further when we got to Eighty Mile. The rest of the trip went smoothly.
We got to Eighty Mile Caravan Park about 2pm, and we were both really impressed with it. So much grass and greenery, a really beautiful spot to stay. There are approximately 200 sites here, but it doesn’t feel crowded. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stop on your travels. It is situated on a great fishing beach and just has a really great feel about it.
