SATURDAY 1 OCTOBER BROKEN HILL TO GOL GOL 305kms
By 10am we were all packed up again and once more heading south.
It had been a pleasant, albeit costly, interlude in Broken Hill. I felt as if we’d had the chance to have a thorough look around the place.
I think we were just about used to people and civilization again….
Our destination was Gol Gol, on the NSW side of the Murray River, a few kms from Mildura.
Booked into the River Gardens Caravan Park – $26 a night for an en suite site. I could get used to these! We booked in for two nights because John wanted to visit a place that had an extensive rock collection. We also had a night to fill in before our appointment at Birchip.
The caravan park was a pleasant one, with a frontage to the Murray River – which was occupied by cabins, unfortunately. No views to be had. Our site was nicely shaded.
We went for a late afternoon walk around the nearby streets, looking at the definitely up-market homes that fronted the river. Rather lovely – except during the occasional flood.
