Both Duck Creek and Lions Road are community funded. I would hope every driver using either road makes a suitable donation. It is the right thing to do.

For sure, if people knew and didn't have cars up their arse going over that hill.
Duck Ck is obvious and easy to stop etc.

Ah well, will likely be going through there again sometime, saw some places I want to go for a walk another trip.

We drove the upper road back to Kyogle Rd via Blue Knob, then turned off to go through Mebbin Nat Pk.
Stopped for late lunch at Byrrill Ck (Cutters Camp), nice spot and a large family of Perentie were about.

A short run from there to Natural Bridge and the QLD border.

Back to brothers place via Tyalgum, Chillingham, which was all in the Tweed Valley view we took in from Pinnacle Lookout.
Very nice drive through there.
Even though it was mid arvo, we had a pretty good run then from Nerang and back up the Pacific Motorway.

Great weekender.

Next ?
Not sure.
Could be home run later this coming week or might stay another week.
If so, maybe another camping weekend, or just a walk somewhere on the Sunday.

Thanks rbjet, not even taking to larger cameras with me now, just the iPhone 6.
They do the job for the web pics which is really all I am using them for.

That's all I used for my recent 4 weeks on the road to Darwin and back. The only thing they can't do is night pics.
