Mitch & Alyson King Horsham, Vic.
On Monday September 5 while driving on the Pacific Highway my wife and I were involved in an accident with a B-double. Although we were not injured, the same could not be said about our new caravan or tow vehicle.
The assistance we received from the Byron Bay and Billinudgel businesses and staff was heart warming.
Thanks to the tow operators, Peter from Tweed Byron Towing, Dave and Ben Northern Rivers Towing, Tony and boys from Warren Simmons Panels who were able to do temporary repairs to get us home. Thanks to Ashley and Melanie at the Byron Motor Lodge and to Senior Constable Heath McCauley of the Highway Patrol and to all who stopped on the highway to assist. Our unexpected stay in Byron Bay was made a lot easier thanks to all involved.
After three days we were back on the road in our vehicle but no van in tow (a write-off), making it home to Horsham on the Saturday with most of our possessions from the van in the back of our now-battered Prado.
Byron Bay – a nice place to visit, a fantastic place to stay, take the time to enjoy. We will be back.
