Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Echuca 30 Nov- 3 Dec 2005

Drove straight to Echuca along fields full of hay bales waiting to be stacked. The combination of flat irrigated land and mild climate makes this a very rich agricultural area. As we wanted to stay on the Murray River, we decided to go to a caravan park for the first time on this trip. We have a lovely spot on a large grassy field and are able to watch the paddle steamers and houseboats meander past. Thursday was very hot and we relaxed by the pool with a few drinks, while Friday was cold and rainy, so we stayed in the motorhome and read books. On Saturday, we had a look around the old port and had a ride on one of the many paddle steamers. The Murray is chocked at Echuca with paddle steamers, speedboats, rowboats and houseboats, with all of them seemingly heading for the same patch of river!!
