Angourie to Lake Arragan
The night's camp site is a forty minute drive, so Fons, Rob, Bev and I are driving there with the vehicles and walking North to meet the others on their way South.
After choosing a camp site, we are ready to start walking. This is Plumbago beach near Lake Arragan.
Lake Arragan is separated from the sea by the beach.
We cross Plumbago Head to reach Caves beach. Rob and Fons standing on the rocks below the headland, above a shallow cave.
The track around the next headland (Shelly Head) leaves the beach at a creek. We don't want to miss the group coming south and not sure whether to stay on the beach or take the track. We have a chat to a passing walker (we don't see many others) who turns out to be a local from Maclean and advises taking the track.
As soon as we leave the beach we meet the others near a Pandanus tree that provides shade for lunch.
Bev and Fons join the other group to walk to the camp while Rob and I continue on the Shelly Head before returning.
From Shelly Head we look back along Caves beach and can just see Brooms Head in the distance.
This is a national park campground with no showers so some of us have a quick swim in the Lake.
There are many wallabies around, all very tame, and one visits our camp.
The only problem with the camp site is that it is shaded early in the morning and sunny in the afternoon.
Dusk on the beach.
