I leave the lake behind to drive on toward Darlington for a 3-day rest. Darlington is really not much more than a dot on the map or, as we say in Australia, "..you will miss it if you blink.." Dave the Ranger does a magnificent job looking after the grounds and I am glad to see him again after a bit more than a year since my last visit.

When I leave Darlington, its back to Beaudesert, some shopping, then on to the cute historic town of Canungra, where I spend one night at the Recreation Ground by the river, in the company of an Iranian family by a nice campfire. I really enjoyed their company. They leave the following morning and I decide to drive to O'Reilly's Plateau high in the Green Mountains with the intention to spend the night there - unfortunately, being Sunday it's full of holiday makers and also rather cold at the much higher altitude.

A quick trip takes me across the border into NSW to Murwillumbah and from there back across the mountains to my campspot by the river. Two days later I am at the door of my newly found family, John and Michelle. I am made very welcome as I feel very much at home on their beautiful property.
