    Echua

    December 14, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We greatly enjoyed our time in Echua, it was pouring with rain the day we arrived and had a big storm that night. Woke the next day to a cool morning which turned into a gorgeous day. While here we did a guided tour through the discovery centre and old wharf..a cruise on an old paddle steamer called the Alexander Arbuthnot. She was built in 1923.
    Also visited the Holden Museum and The Aussie Beer Shed which was amazing.
    On our last day we drove to Rochester to see the Silo murals.

    Mungo National Park

    December 1, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Arrived in Pooncarrie after driving along a horrible corrugated dusty road from Menindee. Had lunch at the old Wharf before finding a camp spot along the dying Darling river where we stayed for 2 nights. It is so sad seeing the condition of this river .. they are deverting the water to the hungry cotton farmers and people along the river miss out. .Spent the arvo cleaning some of the dust out of our van.
    While here we visited the Mungo National Park and did the self drive tour around a series of lakes that have dried up over 42,000yrs ago. Mungo Man and Mungo lady remains were discovered here..the oldest human skeletons found in Australia.
    We really enjoyed the formation of this awesome area..especially walking around the Wall of China.

    November 25, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Left Broken Hill to go and spend some time around the Menindee Lakes area ..found a campsite at Burke and Wills campsite..only us and Chris Kylie and family there. Had a lovely two nights stay and moved to another camp site on the weir. One day we went for a drive into Menindee and the National Park..checked out the Homestead and Woolshed. So very dry would be a site to see when full of water. The boys have been catching yabbies.Read more
