    We left Condobolin and made our way to Cobar. Set up camp in town behind the Services Club. Here we meet a lovely family Chris, Kylie, Will and Callum, shared a drink with them at the club. One of the boys found one of the rocks I hid so explained the process of it all to them. Now they are interested in painting rocks also.

    Menindee Lakes

    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

    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.
