Carrai Plateau

Hi Guys,

I'd been thinking about going somewhere on the long weekend for a drive (weather permitting) & decided on going up to Dasiy Plains & Mary's view. I took my 2 cousins up with me, who hadn't been before, one of them lives in Sydney so he was pretty excited to go bush for a look.
We left just before 7am & had a pretty good drive up. Our first stop was McMillians Hut, there was a young family there that had spent the night & were just packing up so after a quick look around we continued onto Daisy Plains & we checked out the 2 old steam engines there.
There was a few RFS people at the Daisy plains huts with a display set up about bushfire prevention, we didnt bother stopping & kept heading towards the lookout.
We pulled up & walked the last 100m to the lookout, as you can see from the pics it was a cracker of a day, hardly any wind although it was a bit fresh still. We hung around there for about an hr took a few pics before heading back to the car. The young family that was staying at the hut just pulled up as we were leaving & we had a chat about a few other places to visit.
We went back to the intersection with Mines rd & went down there hoping to go see the waterfall at Felters Creek but there was a massive tree down across the track with no way around it so we headed back to McMillians hut to set up for lunch.
After a nice lay in the sun & some food we headed started to head home, passing a 4x4 club from Newcastle on their way to the lookout.
We stopped at the kookaburra school for a quick look around then we checked out the waterfall just down the road a bit. There's a few trees across the track so we had to walk the last 7-800m to the lookout.
After that we headed back to Kempsey
All in all it was a great little drive.
Check out the pics

Interesting chubb83
I have driven the track from Brushy Mountain to Kookaburra then down to Kempsey a few times but never visited daisy Plains so will have to put that on the list for next time.
