Oct 27, 2013 - The mighty Murray

(Ben) Making our way west out of the Adelaide Hills on Friday, the landscape pretty quickly turned brown and dry. We drove for a couple of hours to reach a town called Mannum on the banks of the Murray River. A free ferry service operates all day to get to the other side of the river (from town) and we used this to reach the $10 a night campground opposite town. Tonight is our third night here and we've had a great time. The spot is beautiful - right on the banks of the river at a point where it really is impressive - and there were a...

Sep 10, 2013 - Day 10 - Mannum

What a wonderful morning. The sunrise was amazing and the river still as a milk pond. We got out the fishing rods and Stu promptly lost a spinner. I think we have a lot of practicing to do before we try another spinner! Greg and Elaine were up pretty early so we all got together and went for a walk up to the top of the shopping street. Had a lovely cup of hot chocolate before starting on our way back to the caravan park. Then, Stu and I decided to take the ferry across the other side and up along the river. Beautiful day it was and we took...

Sep 9, 2013 - Day 9 Part 2

Well, we're here. It's about 11.30am and it's a wonderful day. The sky is blue with a scattering of fluffy clouds and it's a warm day. Oh, yeah, beautiful! Right on the river, soooooooo peaceful - hang on, what's that noise? Oh! It's the car ferry! Goes 24 hours a day! hehe, it's not too bad, I will say. We had a visitor very early on - this beautiful blue and black bird - looks like a bush hen, but we're not sure what it is. And, Elaine and Greg have turned up! We have yet to do tea but it's still early.

Jun 14, 2012 - Murray River

What an AMAZING weekend. The poem below says it all. The 'Misty Dawn", She's moving on, Down the Mighty Murray. We're all aboard, Four land all told, And no one's in a hurry. Adventures unfold, For the young and the old, And time is of no matter. Shall we have some wine? What is the time? Half past or quarter to... Either one will do. Captain Bob in command, With wine in all hands, We watch this glorious land. Cliffs of sandstone, Reeds of green, And, oh, the many birds we've seen, Cliff dwelling ducks, Welcoming...

May 1, 2011 - Murray River

Not having driven since early January and never having driven in Australia we were a little anxious about picking up our hire car from central Adelaide. However, having chosen the smallest car we could (we drive small cars in UK too) we set off on our new adventure to drive to Murray Bridge and Mannum to experience the Murray River. It was really Eva’s interest in the Murray river that led us to spend some time in Adelaide. Unfortunately the weather was not its best. In fact did we mention that the temperature has dropped over 20 degrees...

Where's Jolly?

Mar 21, 2008 - 21st, 22nd, 23rd March, Mannum

Day 5 a bit sleepy after the noisy night before, packed and ready for a much slower pace destination Mannum. Headed out and over the Flinders ranges, the Nissan struggled here, a 3 litre diesel just not big enough to pull a 2 1/2 ton van thru' mountainous country. A breeze for the Pajero and the much lighter camper trailer, does seem to be the best way to get around if you want to travel long distances. Over the mountains and then turned south passing thru' lots of tiny country towns which looked like they're on their last legs. Appears...
