Woke up early with a smell of burnt wood in my nose.
Luckily no fires in sight so I made my way down the highway towards Sydney. It was a very hot day with more than 40 degrees.
The engine started to overheat again so I stopped at a gas station and checked for the cooling liquid. Still enough liquid inside so I called the rental company what to do.
After a few hours of driving for 15 minutes and stopping the car to let it cool down I arrived at a mechanic in newcastle.
The radiator was leaking. They won’t be able to fix the problem until the next day (which was the day I had to drop off the van in Sydney) so the rental company organized a towing service.
In the end I got towed from Newcastle to Sydney. Not the way I expected to get to Sydney 😄
But yeah ... of course it was annoying but no one was hurt and I got some money back for the inconvenience.
Checked into Sydney Central YHA hostel late in the evening.
Arrived in Sydney I slept. I slept as much as I can.Finally not to worry about the van anymore...Aft...
Took the van down to a free camping spot at Bulahdelah. Stopped at Forster for the Cape Hawke Lookou...
