Bridgetown Caravan Park

Late last year, Brad and Sue Dowling purchased the Bridgetown Caravan Park, a few weeks before we arrived. The park was well run down and saw few visitors. Brad and Sue spent the first month restoring the residence so they had some where comfortable to live, and then started on giving the park a face lift. Brad and Sue are very likeable people, always pleasant and have a “nothing is too much hassle” attitude toward ensuring thier guests have a pleasant stay, along with thier hard work the park is improving in leaps and bounds, more people are booking in and thier efforts are being noticed. Often when we speak with locals in town, whenever we mention we are staying at the caravan park they comment on how the park has improved. «—click here to read more—»

Bridgetown Part 3 – Lake Towerrinning

Late yesterday afternoon we met up with the Talbot family and two other families for a few beers and to try our luck at catching marron in the local river, we didn’t have much luck with the marron, but had a great time sitting by the river telling yarns and having a few drinks while the kids played together. Afterwards we continues on at Steve and Fran’s place till quite late that night. While there we organized to meat up with the Talbot family the next day and go for a drive to check out Lake Towerrinning. The lake is about an hours drive north east of Bridgetown. «—click here to read more—»

Bridgetown Part 2

February already!  Back to School!  Still Bridgetown!

Jayson started schooling for 2008 this week, considering its the first week back it seems to be full on. Unlike last year where he was knocking the days work over in less than a couple hours, this week he has been spending 6+ hours a day to get though it. In saying that, he has done 5 days work over 4 days, Monday being a public holiday. I think he is going to be a busy boy this year!

January has come and gone, yet we are still here in Bridgetown Carvan Park. We had initially intended to stay for 10 days, then a further few days, then a further week, and now its over a month later and we are still here and happy to stay a little while longer. The weather is great, the park is quiet and friendly, we have made friends with the park owners Brad and Sue, a couple of other long term guests and socialised with many of the other guests that have come and gone over the month. We haven’t travelled far from Bridgetown in the past couple weeks, other than the odd 30k trip to Manjimup to stock up on groceries.

We have had a couple nights of entertainment by a solo musician who plays the guitar, «—click here to read more—»
