I departed Nimbin in the morning and decided to check out Lismore to stock up on some gear. Lismore was quite a change from all the little towns I’ve passed through since leaving Byron Bay. It is a full size city with all the fast food joints and major shopping centres you need. I stopped in to one and found an R.M. Williams store where I bought an Akubra hat. This will help me disguise myself with the locals when I’m closer to Tamworth. Some beautiful architecture remains from the early days.
Departing Lismore I headed on to Casino to find not much, so continued on to Richmond Range National Park.
I was using my maps and GPS to get me to the camp grounds only to find after half an hour driving down a track that the turn off track was non-existent! Had to back track an hour to a previous road. Managed to reach the Peacock Creek Rest Area campgrounds at dusk having wasted a couple hours, although at least I saw some beautiful cattle properties along the way.
