Left beautiful Sunshine Coast and traveled ~350km to our first free overnight stop at Ceratodus.
Ceratodus free stopover – 10km north of Eidsvold
Basic toilets with running tank water
Fire pits dotted about the place
Room for 10 vans comfortably spaced
Apparently fills up quite quickly in popular months.
Most shops closed early Saturday in Eisdvold
We discovered other caravan drivers wave to you (we were so excited!!) so we started waving back to every one we saw. Too fun – trying to pick the type of wave the next rig would do.
Lunch at KFC, took up 5 car parks woops – Dave smashed his head on a light in KFC – continuing his very humorous effort of smashing his head on everything he can find, honestly it’s ridiculously frequent. Tough tattoo fellas in KFC cracked up – made their day.
Started to see a change in the landscape and type of bush surrounding the road. Getting more relaxed now 🙂
Arrived at Eidsvold around 3pm, looking for the free camp listed in our old Camps 4 book which is 7km west of town (Tolderodden Rest Area) – no longer free, it’s $5 per person government e-permit. So on our mission to stay somewhere free we backtracked and continued on 10km past Edsvold to the Ceratodus Rest Area.
Quite a clear view of the milky way at night – amazing – and it’s only going to get better the further in we go.
We woke to a super spooky fog, that was pretty amazing.
