Day 1- Enroute to Sydney

We left at eleven o'clock and all got settled in on the bus with great tunes cranking. We had a break at Taree for some lunch to fill our hungry bellies. We then drove to Tuggerah and did some shopping with the team and got to our cabins at 5pm. We settled in for a meal and celebrated a early birthday with yummy cake. We will all be having an early night tonight ready for the big day tomorrow.
