Leaving Gloucester, we headed for Gloucester River Camping Area in Barrington Tops National Park. The road fords the Gloucester River a number of times, and on reaching the first one I chickened out as the flow looked a bit strong after yesterday's rain. We implemented plan B and headed for Booti Booti National Park just south of Forster.

'The Ruins' camping area is just behind the beach and a few hundred metres from Wallis Lake on the other side. It also has hot showers. A number of goannas were doing circuits during the afternoon and some would come right up to you. They weren't aggressive though.

Another one is not visible behind the car. We had a quiet afternoon and had a walk on the beach at sunset.

Bev wasn't up to strenuous walking so I did the Booti Hill/Lakeside walk by myself. That hill was steep in places and when I arrived at the next beach, I found you could drive there. The lake portion was pleasant though.

After my walk we drove to Seal Rocks and walked up to the lighthouse on Sugarloaf Point. This was a bit steep, but paved and short.

We ended up at Bulahdelah for lunch before driving back to camp.
