Our second day of travelling was also spent sleeping for hours in the car. We left Goulburn in the morning, and after a couple of hours we started taking very steep roads as we headed towards the coast. Mum and Dad followed Google Maps down a road that took them to Broughton Pass, which had hairpin turns, steep roads in and out, and a single lane bridge. With the caravan in tow, this was a very scary drive and Mum and Dad were very anxious about this road. On the steep upwards section the car barely wanted to move!
We also drove down a very steep road heading down towards the beach, and Dad had to brake so much that by the time we reached the bottom the brakes were smoking and smelly!
Once we arrived at the beach, Dad decided we needed to cool the brakes, and we luckily found a great dog beach that we were allowed to run around on. We loved having a good stretch of the legs, and run through the water.
After the beach, we drove north up the coast, and drove across the beautiful Sea Cliff Bridge which goes around the edge of a cliff over the ocean.
We headed back inland, and drove through Sydney towards the Central Coast. Even on Sunday the roads were really busy, and many roads not easy to drive the caravan through.
On the other side of Sydney we stopped in a great rest area in Mooney Mooney, and Mum and Dad had a quick lunch in the caravan. We then headed to Lake Macquarie and setup the caravan.
Mum and Dad still felt like exploring, so we drove up to Newcastle even though it was already evening. We took a walk along the waters edge in a touristy looking area, and had dinner at Hog’s Breath Cafe. They were nice enough to let us come into the restaurant outdoor section.
