Belanglo Forest

Belanglo Forest is usually good if you are looking for a quiet night south of Sydney. Three km of corrugated dirt road tests the suspension before pulling into Daly's Clearing campground. Surprising to see cars and trucks everywhere, looks like a film crew setting up.

Yep, a new range of Mitsubishi SUVs are being tarted up for the cameras. Fascinating to watch the time, effort and man-hours spent, strapping a camera to the bonnet, to get a shot of the driver through the front windscreen. Then washing the cars again before next morning filming five of them driving down forestry tracks.

A quiet nights sleep and free entertainment courtesy of the film crew, now I'm ready to do battle with the Sydney traffic.
