    Paddlestreamer auf dem Murray River

    October 25, 2017 in Australia

    Unsere erste Nacht 🌜haben wir außer einer kurzen Pinkelpause sehr gut verbracht. Unser kleiner Leopold ist nämlich ohne Not-Toilette ausgestattet. Sonst läßt sich sagen Leopold ist ein kleines Raumwunder und wir sind super happy 😊!

    Wenn wir schon direkt am längsten Fluss Australiens übernachtet haben und das Hafengelände von Echuca teilweise noch sehr gut erhalten ist, durfte eine Fahrt mit einem Schaufelraddampfer nicht fehlen. Richtig schön kitschig 👍!

    Ansonsten ging es für uns im Anschluss weiter in Richtung Norden (also weiter in Richtung Outback 😉) nach Swan Hill. Unser Übernachtungsplatz war schnell gefunden am Lake Boga. Eigentlich sollte heute noch der Besuch des „Pioneer Settlement“ auf dem Programm stehen, jedoch wie bereits vor einem Jahr mußten wir feststellen das die Australier nicht viel von Tourismus verstehen. Eine Touristenattraktion die um 16:00 Uhr schließt, unvorstellbar in Deutschland, hier normal 🤣😜. The easy way of life!

    Wir genießen jetzt unseren Ausblick auf den See und überlegen, wohin uns die Reise weiterhin verschlägt! 🍻

    Echuca Riverboat Festival

    February 16 in Australia

    We are here for the second year for what looks to be quite a great lineup. Tonight we will be seeing the Great Joe Camilleri with Vikas and Linda Bull.

    Some may remember the black sorrows from years ago. This should be a good show.

    Campaspe River, Echuca

    February 18 in Australia

    Echuca is the area where 3 river systems connect. The Murray River from the alpine country makes it way down to the sea near Adelaide SA. Here it is joined by the Murrumbidgee from the North East and the Campaspe from the south.

    Right on the high bank Campaspe, the Echuca branch of the Beechworth bakery is located in one of the old buildings. Here one can enjoy a coffee and breakfast while gazing over the river from the back deck at the bakery.

    This morning is different though. On the bakery balcony there is a band playing. Part of the Riverboat Festival peripheral entertainment, we are being treated to some pleasant music while we relax with our breakfast. Soon we will head back over to the main festival area to enjoy the last day of entertainment.

    The Riverboat festival has been completely booked out this year for the second time since its beginnings. Anyone thinking about coming here for this audible treat needs to book tickets and start planning early.

    My wife thinks I'm asleep

    February 18 in Australia

    I am sitting here in the warm afternoon sun, listening to music sung in native tongue. I don't speak this language so I can only imagine.

    Love of place, love of family, love of country. The culmination of 80,000 years of survival living in the harshest country on earth. A massive explosion of technology that bewildered an ancient people.

    Now they adapt to modern music and add a new experience. A group of very talented musicians creating a backdrop to a crowd pleasing sound.

    Stanley Gawurra is a great indigenous artist from Melbourne. Originally he was living at Darwin.
