We decided to move on to a camp at Mamanga near Balranald, NSW, and located on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River. The journey was along the Sturt Highway and through many hectares of grain and grapes.
It was an enjoyable trip and we managed to locate the campsite (although not a well-publicised camp) and found that we were right n the bank with a great view of the river. What a champion place for a stay. It is located as part of a National Park and managed (I understand) by a local Aboriginal organisation – and a great job they do too. There is a modern ‘long-drop’ toilet and rubbish bin collection. Must re-visit this spot again!
Adrian could not resist the fishing and managed a variety of fish and enjoyed the meal that he had earned. We were surprised, during our setting up, to find a couple of small scorpions crossing our site. Keeping an eye on these local inhabitants we managed to complete everything and enjoy the warm weather. A range of bird species kept us attracted to the site although getting photos continued to be difficult.
