I decided to take a trip to Lake Wonboyn in Oct 2023.
Richardson – starting off
I started from Cate’s place in Richardson, where I stayed in her yurt and did some handyman tasks for her.
I’d had a cold that kept coming back – not debilitating but made me miserable, and for various reasons, then found myself quite depressed.
So, I decided to take a short trip. I hadn’t tested my travelling gear on a “real” trip or even put up my new tent.
Wonboyn had been calling me for a few months, so I thought I could kill two birds with one stone – visit Wonboyn and see my mate, Shane, who lives in Melbourne.
This post is a summary of my trip – click the headings below to see more details about each area. (they all open in a new tab.)
Years ago, we (Deb, Michael and Caroline) often camped at Oallen Ford. That’s only an hour and a half North East of Canberra.
Oallen Ford hadn’t changed much in the 20 years or so when I was last there – other than bitumen road on the way in.
I stayed there for a couple of nights, then drove down to Batemans Bay and found a lovely little caravan park (Rio Riata Caravan Park), where I stayed for three nights and caught up with some of my Boldacious Digital work.
I had booked 4 nights at the Wonboyn Cabins & Caravan Park, from Sat night, so I booked Fri night at Bittangabee Campground in the Beowa National Park, which surrounds Green Cape.
Always wonderful and had hardly changed – probably 25 years since I was here last. It is such a beautiful, special place. I extended my stay here to six nights.
