Oh F**k

Road to Orana East State ForestWe left Forster today heading for a bush camp near Wedding Bells State Forest. Unfortunately we missed the turn off, but no problem, we could take the second turn off, Finlay Road and get there .

LlamaWe missed the clear warning from Monty Python – as we turned off we saw the llama and forgot:

Llama’s are larger than frogs
Llamas are dangerous, so if you see one where people are swimming, you shout
Look out there are Llamas

Driving further up the road, we twisted and turned but the road became too narrow to turn around, and then we came up against a half fallen down tree!


By a bit of forwarding and backwarding, we managed to just squeeze through. Then the road forked at the grey pin in the map above. I got out and ran ahead to find the right road, but 50 metres further, both had trees across them. I half-expected to be confronted by a laughing man in Lincoln Green. We managed to unhitch the van to turn it around and had to do this obstacle again – and now it was dark and raining! Some locals drove up to see what we were about. They told us that the road had been blocked for about 20 years, and we felt like goats.

How we felt getting finding the road was closed

Again, with a bit of forward and back, we managed to get under again, and at this point decided we had had enough fun for the night and went and found a very nice caravan park at Mooney Beach.
