    The Murray Darling Confluence

    March 18 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    A full day started with a trip along the Murray River at Mildura in an old paddle steamer, the PS Melbourne. The steamer was built in 1912. The engine sits in the centre of the boat and chugs very slowly driving both paddles. It was a very leisurely cruise on a glorious day.

    We went on to the local information centre to identify where best to view the confluence and learn of other points of interest.

    Lunch in the local pub that has a tractor next to the bar, a visit to the pioneer museum, a look around the old gaol, up the observation towers to view the confluence, on to the lock, up to the desert to see God’s Tree - a 500 year old gum tree that constantly has sand build up around it so that only the canopy shows - and it’s a big canopy, and lastly the tractor up a pole.

    The grey Ferguson T20 tractors hold a special place in the hearts of the locals. The Murray and the Darling drain different areas of Australia, collectively 1/7 of the land mass of Aus’ and 70% of the agriculture of Australia. It was believed that the two rivers would not both flood at the same time. In 1956 they did. It took time for the waters to flow to Wentworth, during which time all available workers came with their tractors to build a levy to protect the time. After weeks of 24hr working the levies protected the town. There is a tractor in the hotel and one up a pole!

    Am Murray River bis Mildura

    December 13, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    From Hahndorf we followed the Murray River to the East for the last days. We enjoyed some awesome views on one of the largest rivers in Australia. The landscape was changing a lot during the last two days as we drove through small citys, green wine regions, salt lakes and the Outback with bush land and big red sand dunes. It was a very nice drive so far.

    Jetzt geht es für uns wieder zurück nach Melbourne. Allerdings führt unser Weg dieses Mal nicht erneut an der Küste entlang sondern durchs Outback. Die letzten Tage ging es für uns direkt am Ufer von Murray River entlang ins landesinnere bis nach Mildura. Landschaftlich hatte die Strecke mit Klippen am Flussufer, grünen Weinregionen, Buschland, Salzseen und Sanddünen einiges zu bieten. Kurz vor Mildura haben wir dann auch unser erstes wildes Emu gesehen :)

    Day 77 Mildura

    June 29, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Today was more of a relaxing day considering it was our last day of holidays. It also rained a lot of the day which made it harder to go out and do things.
    The first thing we did today was drive back into town to check out a few more shops around the area. I got a big winter jacket, Jess got a beanie and a very fluffy coat. Jess and I also bought a giant hippo that we named 'Moto Moto' from the movie 'Madagascar'. 'Moto Moto' is the nickname that we had given our truck for the trip. It seemed appropriate to have a mascot on board!
    Our final night we thought that we would go out for dinner to celebrate. Mum managed to find the dodgiest local pub called 'The Black Stump'. The service was pretty bad but the food was OK.

    Day 75 Victoria

    June 27, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Today we finished up in Silverton and returned back to Victoria.
    It was hard to believe that Silverton, which currently has a population of 40 people, was in its peak, a mining town of more than 3,000 people.
    In the morning we visited the Daydream Mine. We went on an underground tour and then a surface tour. On the tours we learnt about what life was like for the miners in the 1880s when silver was discovered in Silverton. It was pretty tough for miners, working 12 hours a day underground by candlelight. Their life expectancy was only 40 years!
    After the surface tour had ended we enjoyed freshly made scones and milos.
    We returned to the caravan park to retrieve the caravan and continued on our way towards Victoria.
    After crossing the Murray River into Victoria we booked into the Apex River Beach Holiday Park campground in Mildura for three nights. We're planning to be home next Sunday.

    Day 76 Mildura

    June 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Today we returned back to New South Wales to have a look around Wentworth, then returned back to Victoria to have a look around Mildura.
    The first thing we did in Wentworth was visit the Wentworth Gaol. It had lots of cool antiques and it was a very good place to play tiggy.
    Next we drove over to a place called Orange World where we got some free delicious juicy mandarins and we even got an orange peeler. Once we finished in Orange world we went shopping for some more supplies.
    The next thing we did was return back to Victoria to have a look around Mildura. We checked out some shops and a few book stores.

    Day 3

    June 2, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    Got up this morning to a slight frost very chilly, as we have no plan we decided to have a lazy day in Mildura did some shopping, very good shopping lots to look at in town and stocked up on supplies as we are going to head off in to the outback where the shopping is very limited. Lots in the van park, most of them stopping here for a bit and then doing the grey nomad exodus to the top end. Lots of paddle steamers up and down the river, would be a very busy place in the summer months.Read more
