Whales – View from Land – Mollymook – Ulladulla – Bawley Point

Whales frolic on the NSW South Coast of Mollymook Beach, Ulladulla & Bawley Point.

Where have all the whales been? This has been the question on many peoples lips these past few weeks. The Telegraph ran an article 3 weeks ago reporting that the whales were migrating south further out to sea due to the currents.

Well that has certainly changed this past week with spectacular performances off Bannister Head, Mollymook Beach and the Ulladulla light house with further reports off Bawley Point. Guests at Mollymook Beach Waterfront relaxed on their deck and were entertained in spectacular fashion on Friday and Saturday October 19 & 20, 2012. Earlier in the week guests from Tumut had reported exciting performances off Mollymook Beach and the Ulladulla Light House viewing vantage points. Similarly the council land adjoining Bannisters Resort, the “Secret Garden” just a 100 or so metres up the road and the Bannister Headland “Rain Forrest walk” offered excellent vantage points for viewing the whales from land.  (Click on images to enlarge)

Camp andCare with BIG4 at Conjola Lakeside Van Park to support Lake Conjola Rural Bush Fire Brigade

Join thousands of happy campers on Friday 16 November for Camp and Care with BIG4 2012 – Australia’s BIGgest night of charitable camping. BIG4 Conjola Lakeside Van Park is encouraging locals to enjoy a night under the stars, for a nominal $20 site fee to be donated by the park to the Lake Conjola Rural Bush Fire Brigade.

Camp and Care with BIG4 encourages people to try camping for the first time and to explore a holiday destination close to home, (Ulladulla, Milton, Mollymook, Narrawallee) while helping a worthy cause. All proceeds from the park will go to the Lake Conjola Rural Bush Fire Brigade, which combats bushfires and enables the community to be better prepared and protected from bushfires.

Guests staying at BIG4 Conjola Lakeside Van Park will be able to enjoy the park’s great facilities, but can also indulge in the many great local attractions that Lake Conjola offers. Park manager, Gail Taylor says the event is a great opportunity to grab the kids or a group of friends and experience the thrill of camping in the name of charity.

“You can bring the kids, pack up the boat and spend a day on the lake launching from our very own boat ramp. All you need is $20, your camping gear and a sense of adventure – we provide the rest!” Gail says.

With 100 BIG4 Holiday Parks participating in Camp and Care with BIG4 this year, Rachel Pugh – General Manager of Marketing at BIG4 Holiday Parks, says the ninth annual camping event will appeal to all holiday makers wanting to try something new and make a difference.

Camp and Care with BIG4 gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy a night of camping at a flat fee of $20 per site, with the added bonus of knowing the money is going to a local person, group or organisation in need,” Rachel says.

“Last year’s event was a great success, raising much needed funds for causes all over the country. We’re looking forward to working with the people of Australia to make a small difference once again,” adds Rachel.

Many parks will be hosting additional activities over the weekend to celebrate the event such as pancake breakfasts, face painting and BBQs to name just a few, so check out the list of participating parks online and explore a new, or familiar, area for a good cause.

Pitch in on Friday 16 November and book your powered camping site at one of 100 participating parks, at BIG4.com.au/comecamp

Camp and Care with BIG4 is proudly sponsored by maui, CIL Caravan and RV Insurance, and Mitsubishi Motors.
