Jun 9, 2017 - 9th June, 2017. Loxton to Coomealla near Wentworth, NSW
9/6/2017. Coomealla, NSW 9am start and we stopped at Renmark which is a big, pretty town and where we used the library and had coffee and a snack - Ian said the best sausage rolls ever. As we farewelled the Riverland, we also said goodbye to the Green and Gold - the beautiful orange and mandarins trees with glossy dark leaves and laden with fruit. We passed lots of vineyards, orchards, wheat, sheep and cattle and ground ready for planting. Our overnight stop is the Coomealla Club Motel and Caravan Park Resort, and it's one of the best we've...Jump to full entry
Apr 6, 2013 - Corrugation!
This morning we made up our minds to leave Wentworth and follow the Darling. This takes us via Pooncarie, an old Darling River wool town, to Menindee 237 Klm's north of Wentworth. Until we got to Pooncarie where we stopped beside the Darling for lunch, the road was made. After leaving Pooncarie the road became very corrugated. Pooncarie is such a small town that you're through it in no time. Population 60. We had been thinking of going to the Mungo National Park but a vehicle of our size was too big so we gave it a miss. Driving on...Jump to full entry

That is, deciding when to get up! Bike riding and boating were the order of the day. We went around to the Murray and sat there with the engine off watching the sun go down. Quite a few people are interested in the boat. We heard some boys in a tinny say "that's a fold up boat." The great thing is we can put it on the roof when we go.Jump to full entry
Apr 4, 2013 - Can't get past the boat!
We arrived here yesterday and are situated beside the Darling River. It's a beautiful spot. This is where the Murray and the Darling Rivers meet. We went out in the boat later in the day cruising through a gap into the Murray and up to the weir and back then up the Darling past Wentworth and the lovely houses on the banks. Watching the birds and taking lots of photos. We moored at the boat ramp and walked through the main street, and in a shop cum museum there we looked at all the miniature paddle steamers a man had spent a lifetime...Jump to full entry
Dec 19, 2004 - Meet the rellies (pt 3)
Quick stop off on the way out of Adelaide in the morning for a catch up over breakfast with Steve's cousin Norm, before heading back on up to Ann & Daves for christmas lunch with many & varied branches of the Todd Family Tree (22 of us in all). Dave is apparently well known for a short temper (and just as quickly returning to his usual sunny self) and saw this in action when he smashed one of the tables into its consituent pieces. Also saw Steves genetic inheritance in action (his grandfather was a carpenter) when he hammered it back...Jump to full entry
