The location for the trip had been slightly changed from being in the Murray Sunset NP to just a short way North up to the Murray River just below Lock 7 in the Lindsay Island NP.
Being I had made a couple of short trips through the Murray Sunset it was nice for a drive but to camp for a few days was not ideal.
With myself heading of early to secure a large enough area for the intended group to arrive the next day I decided to travel from Pinnaroo up the Border Track for a look with my youngest son Kyah. It was a good drive and got us of the bitumen and through some new tracks which we are always looking for.
After stops at all the intersections placing signs we arrived at the ideal camp site for our group right on the river with heaps of room.the decision to hold the camp here turned out to be a good one.
Frank arrived quite late that night after work and the next day we gathered some firewood ready for the Adventure Campers to slowly roll in to camp with the last arrivals getting in close to midnight as everyone set up and got to know one another by the camp fire.
As usual there were some good old laughs had by the fire especially when Rick discovered his chair had no roll back bars.
Not to worry Ian took care of that while Rick was getting a refill and pegged the chair to the ground for safety reasons off course!
The next day we took a short drive out to Kulkurna Cliffs which proved harder to get to than expected but we got there to find a nice big houseboat moored lapping up the serenity. That was until we got there that is.
After a quick chat to the boaties we headed back to camp for a nice easy afternoon.
The yabbying was unsuccessful while the fishing yielded 3 Murray Cod which were all put back and only one carp which was a surprise.
A few of us got our camp ovens out and cooked up some awesome pizzas and dampers.
While the kids all chased geckos and lizards all weekend long and had a ball together.
All small number had other commitments and could not continue on to Mungo NP with the rest of the group we headed out along the Old Coach Road via Neds Corner and in to Mildura for some quick supplies and on to Mungo.
We made camp just out side the park in the designated area that allowed fires as we all had wood on board.
The next day we took a drive to Rangers station and old shearing shed for a look around before taking the loop of the park.
A big dust storm blew through preventing us from taking a walk in to the Walls of China so this will need to wait until next time.
The day was finished of with another camp fire and some dumplings being cooked up which was a real treat.
Thanks to everyone who attended and made the trip so great and Rosemary for the photos.
As one gentleman told us “ Before we left we made the comment that we were going camping with friends that we haven’t met yet, and that certainly was the case.
