Call to SE Qld & Northern NSW campers

Postby amanda » Tue Jul 14, 2009 8:36 am

We're heading to Flat Rock Tent Park (Ballina) on Friday the 7th August for two nights. If anyone is interested in making an outing of it you're more than welcome to tag along.

Flat Rock is located at Angels Beach in East Ballina, and is 2 hours south of Brisbane. The park has toilets, hot showers, fireplaces, and ice and gas are available from the office. Unfortunately Flat Rock does not allow pets (sorry Gypsy and PJ).

Let me know if you're interested in joining us.

Since I cannot find any mention of powered sites, I'm guessing that there is no power available. Searching for a website for Flat Rock hasn't yielded much, with the Ballina Council site having suspended the pages for Flat Rock (weird, huh?).

This is the best reference I could find: http://australia.shopsafe.com.au/new_so ... dation.htm

Perhaps you could confirm the absence of powered sites?

Otherwise, looks like a fabulous place. My late parents retired to Ballina and I visited quite a bit so know the area - but we made the decision to organise our camping around electricity which restricts the places we can go. Nevertheless ... it is a delightful area and you will have a great time walking on those gorgeous beaches :grin:

Yes, that's the one, and no - they don't have powered sites I'm sorry.

Anyone know what the road works are like at the moment north of Ballina. When I went down to Coffs a couple of months ago it was terrible.

Not sure Derek - I was down that way a couple of weeks back but I turned off to Lennox Head (just before Macadamia Land), and headed into Ballina via the coast road so wasn't affected by roadworks at all. Not sure what it's like if you try to drive into Ballina via the highway.
