    Final stop! Barmah (part one)

    November 3, 2017 in Australia

    All those months ago when we were planning our trip, we'd always used the Melbourne Cup weekend as our trip end date. We figured our annual camping trip with friends was going to be the perfect finale for our adventure.
    We arrived a day earlier than everyone else, on Thursday, and the place was virtually deserted! We parked the van temporarily while we waited for the caravan park guy to mark out our area for this year...and that's when Jen noticed a sadly familiar sight... The rear left wheel on the caravan didn't look right - and sadly, it wasn't! Another locator bolt gone but in a stroke of luck, we'd hunted down the part and a local guy, John, within half an hour and the best bit was that he came to us! We sat and relaxed by the river while he did the hard work and then we finally got around to setting up.
    Dinner outside and then a fire with marshmallows to toast seemed to be a fitting way to spend the last evening of "just us" on our trip. We all agreed having friends coming to join us for the weekend was definitely the best way to end our travels!
    On Friday morning we decided to tick one last thing off our "I wish we could" list and took the kids for a trail ride along the river, just outside of Echuca at the Billabong Ranch. The kids had been wanting to do a horse ride since we had stayed at Home Valley Station so it was nice to surprise them with a 1 hour trip. Even better was the unanimous agreement that it had been worth the wait!

    Final stop! Barmah (part two)

    November 5, 2017 in Australia

    Happily, on Friday we were invaded by our regular Cup weekend camping crew and the rest of the long weekend was filled with friends and fun. Bike riding, swimming, Lego, games, toasting marshmallows and going out in the boat were all on the kids' agendas while almost all of the adults made the most of having entertained kids and relaxed riverside! Was definitely the ONLY way to end our road trip!

    Murray River - Forges Beach no. 1

    March 16, 2017 in Australia

    Overnight at a fantastic free camp on the Murray, complete with our own sandy beach. We both had a swim and Marg was so relaxed she fell asleep in the pool hammock and floated downstream! Unfortunately the neighbours woke and returned her...hehe

    Yarrawonga River Camp

    February 19 in Australia

    There must be thousands of camp sites along the Murray River. This camp was one of the nicest we camped at.

    We arrived in time for lunch and were setup quite quickly. Happy hour with a cour of other people from Melbourne then an early night. We decided we would have breakfast at Yarrawonga

    Yarrawonga

    February 20 in Australia

    We decided to stop at Yarrawonga for breakfast. The park here is very nice and this morning the temperature is almost a little too cool.

    Visiting children must love the water area which features splash area and water slide. There are good walking paths that seem quite busy with people out and about walking dogs.
