    Mildura - Part 1

    July 5, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    End of Day 1 - Mildura
    Roadkill winner for the day: Kangaroos
    No wombats today - 5 banged up kangas.

    Got to Mildura and went to the info centre to book a Mungo National Park tour, only to be told that the park would be closed on Wednesday due to the rain. Bugger! I was looking forward to it. I'll have to see if I can fit one in on the way back. I grabbed a bunch of brochures to see what's worth checking out while I'm in town.

    Checked in to the Seven Pines Motor Inn which is clean and well located. Just a bit tight on the parking and the rooms could do with a bit of soundproofing.

    The main drag is within an easy walk, so I traipsed down to "Feast Street" to scope out dinner options. The street was light on people, being a Tuesday night, but the street itself was gorgeous at night. I ended up walking down to the Black Stump Burger Bar which was pretty quiet (only one group of people). The staff were friendly, the food ok but not spectacular.
