Dungog Showgrounds, NSW

The showgrounds are well placed, pretty quiet except for the ever-present idiots, and very reasonably priced – CMCA members pay $15 per night (per site) and non-CMCA is $20 per night.
Sorriest looking Sulphur Crested Cockatoo EVER!!!!
Just good friends!  Corellas looking for trouble

Belmont Pines Riverside Caravan Park, Lake Macquarie, south of Newcastle, NSW

This is where we stayed for three days while I paid a visit to the Newcastle Hospital Emergency Centre just for the purpose of getting a referral to their Orthopaedic clinic.  The park is a lovely place to stay for tourists here out on the point, and there are also a few other tourist sites further back off the shore line.  There are also quite a number of permanent sites.  Would be a lovely, if very busy spot in summer.
My appointment for Orthopaedics is scheduled for 2 July, when (if the Gods bless me), I will have the cast taken off.
Fabulous view over Lake Macquarie
Delightful spot on the point
