Our trip south

We finally decided, rain permitting, to brave the elements and drive south and visit some interesting places.On our way we visited Rosies Cafe at Johns River, where the locally roasted coffee is excellent.
After coffee we headed to the town of Harrington. Harrington is located 46.6kms south-east of Laurieton. It is on the northern arm of the entrance to Manning River. The town, which grew around a pilot station for vessels entering the river, became a port for cedar, maize and farm produce from further up river.
The breakwater built in 1894 provides a haven for swimming and small craft. It is quite some breakwater and fishing is a popular pasttime.
It is an extremely popular for the holiday maker and the views of the lagoon and the surf are awesome
