A beautiful morning greeted the team and it was time to break our riverside campsite and hit the road for the 350km trip to Tamworth, along Putty road then the Golden Highway taking in Singleton, Muswellbrook and onto Australia’s Country music capital.

The drive along Putty Road and then the New England Highway made for a wonderful route, with great variability to put the vans and vehicles through their paces and see how the G&S Chassis’ work under each caravan.

Travelling with Marc from G&S Chassis enabled thorough and regular explanation over the 2-way radios on the machinations of chassis design and suspension characteristics and how it affects handling; great to have such a knowledgeable person joining us on this trip.

With the sun getting low in the western sky we arrive at Tamworth and our perfectly located accommodation at the Paradise Tourist Park.

We all head into town for dinner and with lots to explore around Tamworth for the next two days it is an early night for all as tomorrow it is going to get a little country.
