We crossed the NSW border into the fertile farming land close to mountains and rainforests of the far north coast of New South Wales early afternoon. 6.5 kilometres of lovely mountain scenery brought us to Mullumbimby which is situated at the junction of the three arms of the Brunswick River about 4 kilometers west of the Pacific Highway and about 15-20 minutes from Byron Bay.
Brunswick River Mullumbimby is close to Ocean Shores, Brunswick Heads, and Billinudgel. We have already discovered the locals refer to their town affectionately as Mullum, After the natural bush we drove through on the approach to the town from the north I never expected such a large shopping precinct. I will have no problem stocking up on supplies before moving on on Saturday.
For the fitness minded, the Chincogan Festival is held here in September, and this includes a foot- race to the top of Mount Chincogan, a conical shaped mountain that is located northwest of the town.
We have camped beside the Brunswick River Mullumbimby on one of only a few powered sites on the grounds of the Mullumbimby Leagues Club. I feel privileged to have such a great caravan camp site for four nights.
I bet Reg has the fishing line in the river in the Morning before he even makes his first cup of coffee.
These photos are of the view from our caravan.
