2004 Travels September 15

WEDNESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER   MILDURA TO NARRANDERA   470kms

A fairly long day, today, but not as bad as it might have been.

The main drawback to today was that the country we passed through was mostly quite unremarkable. We crossed the flat, rather dry, wheat growing inland plains. Occasional rivers, and then some irrigated country later in the day, broke the monotony a bit.

Refuelled at Balranald – $1.10cpl.

Stopped by the roadside beyond Hay to eat lunch.

At Narrandera, went into the Lake Talbot Caravan Park. Top Tourist. $18 a night, after discount. We had a drive through site – convenient, but it put us close to neighbouring vans.

Our van looked so grubby beside those that only drive on sealed roads!

I was not all that impressed with this park. Some of their sites did overlook the Murrumbidgee River, which was pleasant, but some were very uneven. It would clearly get crowded at holiday times, being a waterside location in the dry inland plains.

John just wanted to nap and play computer after his day. I went for a walk around the park and lingered in sections where I could see the  river.
