We arrived at Myall Lakes NP late in the evening after a long drive from Kanangra-Boyd NP with our visit to Jenolan Caves along the way. It was raining when we arrived and we looked at a couple of campsites and decided on Wells Campground, mainly to avoid the large group in the first campsite we looked at.
It rained, quite heavily at times, for most of the two days/three nights that we were there but we made the most of a few breaks in the weather. And while it was raining we had time to play games in the tent and huddled under our awning (trying to avoid the drips).
One morning when the weather was looking promising we drove to Dark Point, an area of impressive sand dunes with a number of indigenous middens. The kids had a great time playing on the dunes and one in particular was quite tall and very steep. Our visit was cut short when the rain started again so we never found the middens. And we almost never found the car again either, getting a bit lost on the way back through the dunes.
Mungo Brush Rainforest Walk
The rain that cut our visit to Dark Point short turned to drizzle so we decided to try the rainforest walk. It was a little wet but it was a lovely walk anyway. The highlight was the kids finding a vine hanging from a tree which they spent a while swinging on, Tarzan style.
After our third night, we packed up early and headed out of the park to the north-east, which requires a short ferry ride over the lake. Then it was about a 1.5 hour drive to Gloucester and the Drifta factory to get a few things fixed on Mali.
