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.

Hay 7 October 2009

Barellan's Favourite Daughter
Left Griffith and onto Hay. As we drove out through the vineyards, the landscape changed and became dead flat. The vast flatness is emphasised by the lack of trees and is known as the Hay Plains. It is reputed to be one of the flattest places on earth. You could see vehicles approaching from a huge distance. Hay is a friendly little town that has provided a new free camp spot (Sandy Point) next to the Murrumbidgee River. The river bank is very sandy at this spot and the locals must be in beach heaven in summer. The water level was very low, reflecting the years of drought and the never-ending story of who can dam the river and take what they want.
