It was a short and scenic drive to the third stop on our Go Make Some memories Convoy for Charity. We arrived in Bermagui around lunch time, which gave us plenty of time to set up at the Ingenia Holidays Ocean Lake. Ingenia Holidays Ocean Lake is located on the shores of the tranquil Wallaga Lake on the South Coast of NSW, a perfect location for our stay and happy hour. With a range of accommodation options including villas, units, powered and unpowered caravan and camping sites it’s the perfect spot for an adventurous or relaxing family holiday.
As soon as everyone set up their caravans Bruce, Prousty and some of the crew went fishing with Dj’s Xtream Fishing Charters. They had a wonderful afternoon on the water with a fantastic tour guide, Darren Redman who has over 30 years of experience within the industry. They caught enough fish to have a BBQ that night and feed the entire convoy.
While the fish was cooking Danella and Alistair gave me a tour of the their home on the convoy, the Avida Rock.The Avida Rock is an off road caravan, is light weight and has a modern interior design that allows you to explore the remote parts of Australia in style. This was a perfect van for this couple, as they mostly enjoy a little off-road travel mixed in with 5 star comfort. When talking to Alistair he said “How lucky were we, this caravan is awesome and we absolutely loved it. For anyone looking to purchase a new van to hit the road and start exploring our awesome country, I can not recommend the Avida rock enough. It has everything you need and looks cool as on the road, it’s also a fully Off-Road vehicle”.
Our second day in Bermagui was a fun filled one. The first activity of the day was Ivy Hill Gallery. Ivy Hill features the work of significant contemporary artists, both emerging and established, located on a farm, it’s well known for being a cultural hub for the area. The beautiful gardens provided everyone with the perfect photo opportunity. After the gallery everyone headed to The Camel Rock Brewery. This Brewery on Wallaga Lake Boasts 40 years of brewing experience, with an extensive range of delicious beers this was the perfect spot to set up for lunch.
The town of Bermagui was something special, filled with vibrant shops and energetic people, everyone was more than happy to contribute in our town fundraising walk. The convoyers put on their Cure for brain Cancer purple tops, pins and wrist bands and set off to raise some money. We were in town far longer than planned as the town of Bermagui really showed their support for this charity and wanted to help in any way they could.
Before we knew it it was time to start setting up for happy hour. Everyone at the holiday park was really impressed with all the prizes we had on display from Camec, Caravan RV Camping, Award RV, Maywest caravans, Golden Circle, clearview, Trojan Parts and especially the De Fibs R Us voucher we had for their not yet released defibrillator, coming out 2019. All of these prizes helped us raised some much needed funds and awareness for CBCF.
The lake provided the perfect location for happy hour and the Dyson children set up their Golden Circle table and handed out free juices to everyone. Prousty gave us all a laugh with his poetry, but this time was a little different because for the first his wife Therese got up on stage and performed her poetry. As everyone was taking a tour of all the vans that were on display, I was able to get Shelly and David to give me a tour of their Crusader Caravans Excalibur Prince. The Prince features a 42mm one-piece composite floor, composite smooth sided Alupanel cladding, Duratech 6” chassis and 15” light truck tyres, and is a joy to tow. Fireman Ron and Prousty played into the night as everyone enjoyed a drink (or two).
The next morning the convoyers, cast and crew packed up and began their journey to our next stop, Batemans Bay.
