On this next leg we had to travel over the border into SA again. As we had taken a different route we were welcomed this time by the… Read More »Heat seeking Molly….
Travel with us as we travel the 2,300km of the Murray River.
During the departure checklist for the car which is to check all the engine fluids, tyre pressures and connections, I noticed that the coolant level was low. As Molly is old 12 months old it would be unusual to lose coolant. Before we left Melbourne, we had the car serviced which included having all the… Read More »Sunset on our epic Murray River odyssey

This morning while were having breakfast, we spotted a very plump bird that was running through the grasses digging holes in the ground. Neither of us had seen the bird before so we checked Google, which allowed us to match a picture. The bird was a Guinea Fowl. So we went for a drive along… Read More »Mannum

Taking the advice of a couple we met yesterday, we went to visit Loxton. Loxton was about 40km from Lake Bonney, our camp. So we hopped in the car, back through Berri. As you arrive in the main street of the little town, there are some old buildings. We went down and had at a… Read More »Loxton & 919 Wines

We awoke to another cloudless day that the area is renowned. We had a brief look through the pamphlets that Karen had taken from the information centre. We then decided to do the tourist drives around Paringa, SA as they were the furthest away at 50kms. So we headed towards Renmark and the hooked a… Read More »Paringa & Surrounds
