Chaffey Dam, Tamworth

We had to head into the town of Armidale for new gas bottles and to fill up the water tank, and stopped the night at a caravan park.  We couldn’t believe it actually cost more for a powered site here than the parks along the coast. We weren’t very happy but it was getting late and had started to rain again.

Anyway, fully charged up again and with the fridge restocked, we headed out of town and found a beautiful spot to camp next to the Chaffey Dam, a short drive from Tamworth.  It was only $5 a night in an honesty box.   There was a minor problem though when we discovered we only had $50 notes and had to drive back to the last little town and buy ice creams from the store to get change.

I’m glad I brought my little ‘festival’ wellies.
