Nov 23, 2012 - Morgan to Berri

Mum and Keagan spent the morning up early down on the pontoon watching all the birds on the water. We had breakfast and Dad cleaned the bird poop off the motor home (not sure could cope with the Corellas and their performances) before heading North to Morgan. We travelled through dry wheat and sheep country with glimpses of citrus/olives/vineyards before crossing the ferry to arrive at Morgan. Morgan was once the busiest inland port in Australia - there is quite a good museum with models of paddle steamers and displays which we had a look...

Mar 26, 2008 - 26th and 27th March, Berri

Certainly no rush to get out of our camp at Katarapko Creek, with Berri only 20 kms away. Terri was up videoing the sunrise and then a swim and walk along the river bank. Didn't leave until about 11ish and into Berri in about 20 minutes. Checked into the caravan park, would have to be the best we've ever stayed in, absolutely immaculate, excellent facilities and only $1 more per night than that atrocious dunghill at Port Augusta. Pulled in & set up the camper and went for a bit of a bike ride over the road to the river....as with every...

Jan 20, 2008 - Gawler to Berri, Riverland

Gawler to Berri Riverland We took the Sturt Highway to Berri and arrived about lunchtime. The campsite was situated right on the banks of the Murray River and we were immediately impressed with the beauty of the area. We have often wondered why everyone sings the Murray River's praises and now we know. We were so impressed that we decided we would follow the river all the way to its mouth at Lake Alexandrina south of Adelaide. It was also interesting to find out that the Murray has it's source in the Snowy Mountains and forms the border...

May 11, 2006 - Riverlands & The Barossa Valley

As we left the coast behind (and hopefully the harsh weather too) I watched the landscape change through the van window while Louise drove. Greens fade to greys and browns, the trees get smaller and more scattered, hours go by without passing another car. We are headed north through the arid outback towards the Murray River, 'riverland' as they call it. A stop for lunch in Bordertown netted us some really bad food but plenty of info, maps, a cool bumper sticker and best of all a peek at the elite 'white kangaroos'. They don't print bumper...

Apr 3, 2005 - Berri 3-10/4

Well known for its juice brand - yes, it is made locally - even if late news has it being sold off overseas. Stayed at Riverside Caravan Park (yes, another one) - very nice. Largest grassed sites we have seen for some time, good facilities, cost average. Berri itself is a nice town. Reasonable size (it has both Coles and Woolies supermarkets) but not too big (no supermarket discount petrol). Took a few drives around the area to look at the differences between the Murray river here compared to Victoria. The river remains much the same, but...
