That’s where we are now – staying in the Alstonville showgrounds, a little town about 12km from Ballina. We saw the campspot in the Camps 4 book and thought we’d check it out.

For $15.00 a night we get a powered space under a big pavilion, so if it rains we are well covered. Given the cooler weather a bit more sun would be nice, but we decided to cover ourselves against rain and went undercover.

One of our first impressions of this little town was its friendliness. We drove in while the markets were on so we had to spend a couple of hours just kicking around while the pavilion cleared. We had a bunch of people wanting to chat and make conversation. A walk thru the town today took a long time because we got talking to a couple of people in a local shop…

It’s a nice spot and well worth a stop if you are doing the journey.
