Fifty kilometres west of Bundaberg is Gin Gin (I’m sure there’s an alcohol related joke here but I can’t come up with one right now ;o)
Gin Gin Showgrounds
followed the sign that points you to the caretaker. Booking for one
night then returning later to pay for another so we could head in to
Bundaberg the next day.
The showgrounds is large and grass, all be it a bit dry at the moment. Many vans were here when we arrived and by night it was almost full. This is definitely a popular camp ground. As well as caravans, horse’s came to stop for a night or two in the stables
A couple of toilet and shower blocks are available and a large camp kitchen area is in the centre. The dump point is at the back of one of the toilet blocks and bins are out the front.
Have a Drive to Bundaberg
Being close to
Bundy, we went for a drive to check it out. I had visited about 15yrs
ago with my mate Sarah but things have changed. Larry and I aren’t
rum drinkers but had a look around the shop and got a coffee at the
cafe. A good place for people who may want to check it out but not
want to drink and drive.
While here we met up with the maker of WiTi. The wireless trailer interface and alarm we use on our caravan. The owner, Tony, has been great with after sales information. Larry was keen to chat to him as we were all in the same area. As you probably know by now, Larry likes his tech so they had a great chat. (See more on WiTi here)
Closer to the showgrounds is Gin Gin’s main street. it’s on the next road so you can have a stroll to the information centre, bakery, shops or pub.
