Chevron Island Surfers Paradise
Surfers Paradise Sydney Road Trip seeing lots of friends & in particular caught up with Karen Greenwood an old girlfriend from 1991, 26 years ago. As you can see see still looks fantastic. 🙂 So many great memories came flooding back, it was certainly wonderful week Surfers Paradise. We are at Franks seafood cafe on Chevron Island.
Here we are 26 years ago.
I could’t resist posting this photo from 1991.
I first visited this iconic bar on New Years Day 1982, 35 years ago. The reason I am so sure of the date is it was the day after my unforgettable NYE on Sydney harbour with my overloaded boat being showered by sky rockets.
First stop Kingscliff only a 40 minute drive.
Just a quick stop for a very good breakfast and some photos.
The name of the cafe was Kettles On & the breakfast was excellent.
Miles of deserted beach at Kingscliff
Certainly an idealic place to live.
Kingscliff to Yamba
The sea was angry that day my friends….
Many thanks to Gearge Castanza. 🙂
Strangely Mexican food has never been on my list of favourites.
Mexican! That’s not a Mexican, this is a Mexican.
My apologies Pablo.
A 3.5 hour drive with a stop at Grafton for a Maccas.
Old habits die hard…
Over the years I think I have stopped here at Grafton 20 times for a strawberry shake.
Surfers Paradise Sydney Road Trip, Port Macquarie.
Centre of town
Port has quite a large shopping centre & a population of 80,00 & growing rapidly.
A very popular area with a good climate and about a 4’5 hour drive to Sydney.
With a brief stop at Newcastle to say hi to my old mate Barry Madden.
Barry & I worked together in the mid 90s with NRMA as financial planners.
The Settlers Tavern Gosford

Classic Australian pub picture
This is the Robin Hood hotel at Waverly, however years ago these fabulous pictures were found on most Aussie pubs.
It was a great drive down from from Surfers Paradise to Sydney stopping at Kingscliff, Yamba, Port Macquarie, Forster-Tuncurry, Gosford & Coogee. Also dropped into Maroubra which is a place I have not seen for over 50 years. Just click on the links to see my photo blogs.
