We enjoyed a quiet night overlooking the Murray River in Corowa. Only 3 other couple were in the campsite overnight and we did not see or hear them. Pam went off for a walk whilst I deleted a hundred photos and did a little bit of planning for today.

Rolling out the gate this morning Pam is keen to take back the cans and bottles we have collected since we left and get a refund at the return and earn. Pam doesnโ€™t like the government enough to give them her (our) 10c. The return and earn point is just up the street, so up we go. Pams next good idea is for me to take our 11 cans and bottle over whilst she guards the camper. In Corowa it appears that return and earn is something of a outing as most of Corowa are lined up with multiple bags and boxes of cans and bottles.

Twenty minutes later we depart Corowa with a $1.10 voucher.

Pam spotted this line of trees in blossom as we left Cowra.

Mulwala, New South Wales, Australia

So we follow the banks of Lake Mulwala for some 15 kms into Mulwala itself. The place is a picture, the views across the lake are picturesque and somewhat unique with the skeletons of dead red gums protruding randomly across the water.

This place has got everything !

Apparently Mulwala is a very popular holiday spot for Victorians, however we understand Chairman Dan is not welcome.

Mulwala even has a steam locomotive.

We park for breakfast and go for a walk about before backtracking a few kms and taking the turn for Tocumwal.

Tocumwal, New South Wales, Australia

We find a parking spot in Tocumwal easily enough and go exploring.

Deniliquin Street, Tocumwal.

Murray River Cod

Someone tells me scrapping dead bugs off the windscreen is not her job !

Barham, New South Wales, Australia

It has been a long but very interesting day visiting some of the river towns along the Murray so the sight of our pitch for the night is very welcome. We looked at a free stop on the river near the outskirts of Barham, but the track to it wasn’t motorhome friendly so we continue into town. Once again, we virtually have the place to ourselves with only one other couple staying at the Barham Caravan Park that night.

Our digs for the night…

The lady at the caravan park recommends the Barham Pub, it was surprisingly good..
