35 days to go .
Yesterday we left Albury to head westwards towards Yarrawonga, on the Murray River. We spent two nights in Albury and also had a look around Wodonga which is in Victoria, just over the bridge. It is interesting along the Murray River as there are often towns on either side of the river. The border between NSW and Victoria runs through the centre of the river.
In Albury they have a magnificent War Memorial at the top of a hill over looking the town. What a view.
Yesterday we left Albury and headed more or less west, following the Murray River. Stopping at Rutherglen for morning tea we stretched our legs.
We had read of a free camp along the Murray River, just 19 kms west of Yarrawonga. we set the GPS co-ordinates into our Navman and off we went. When we got to yarrawonga we were led down the main street and over the bridge back into NSW and down some farm roads to a farm. No Free camp.
Turning around we could only assume the Co-ordinates were wrong and set off, missing the turnoff to the camping area and landing in Cobram. After we had lunch and check for other camping sites, we decided to turn around and carefully followed the directions in the camp book. We ended up exactly opposite the farmhouse on the other side of the river. The co-ordinates in the Camps 7 book are just fractionally out.
We are now camping on the Victorian side of the Murray River with no one about for a couple of days.
Tomorrow, Monday, I think we are leaving and driving to Gunbower.
