Silverton rekindled our enthusiasm for COGs not that we were tiring of them. I will travel almost anywhere but agree with previous comments a shower and toilet are important even if only to keep the bride happy.
One place I've visited several times is Mann River NP west of Grafton, no showers but newish long drop toilets, large level area but firewood could pose a problem. I don't know of anything else but will do some research.

An anniversary oven doesn't interest me, I have a set of Billmans and couldn't use another one

Rob.

Mann River Reserve has been on my gotta do list a long time. I believe there is plenty of quality water in the river.
Depending on the timing, we will be in on that COG.

Interesting area Aart, the old Cobb and Co road to Grafton goes thru a tunnel about 100 metres long carved by convicts, have pics somewhere.

Gee I'd love to do another COG before Christmas, bride agrees!

I know that area pretty well I used to go camping there with my kids. It is better further up past the tunnel right at the foot of the range is a really great camping area and always clean. The big one near the Mann river crossing has rough toilets and no shade and is not a very attractive spot. Some very interesting sights on the way in apart from the tunnel there is an old ghost town that's worth a look.

Any thought of where Rob.  Maggie and I could be interested but would need to be late October or November.

Actually I think they have become more than just camp oven cooking.  It is the fantastic friendships that have come out of them.

I am available second weekend in November onwards.
Hope that fits in. Is Mann River an option.

Aart.
Living locally we know the Mann r. reserve quite well and agree with PD would be a top location.
However, it is NP with all that means re fire restrictions from (say) late Oct. on, plus it is next door to the Wytaliba alternate lifestyle community who zealously guard their "cash crops" when any fire risk is evident.

From a positive, the Mann r. is alive with silver eels and catfish, both a real delicacy cooked or smoked. A (not legal) Eastern Cod is always a possibility too. Cool

Not against the location, just maybe a seasonal choice.

Wherever the final location is decided on, we are very keen on attending another COG later this year. Smiley
