Cycling Grafton - Iluka

December 8th Grafton - Iluka 68km

Later start today, mainly because of the comfy bed not the beers!  The ride was nice today with most of it being on really quiet roads and about as flat as you can wish for.  We passed farmers harvesting sugar cane and then took a short ferry ride before stopping for coffee in Maclean.  The road got a bit busy here with less of a shoulder but we were soon riding into Yamba.

Yamba is a relaxed tourist town with all the cafes and and restaurants to go with it.  We decided to take the ferry to Iluka as we are riding from here tomorrow and want an early start.  The ferry crossing was very pleasant and the campsite right on the riverside as you get off the boat.

We set up, had a look around the little village and chilled out watching a dvd.

Yet another Ferry
