2nd part to vanning around the Murray 2015

Yes hello again and this does not look very exciting but well, this was happening just up the river from where we camped for 2 nights......

Remember I mentioned environment stuff well this was it.......

Pumping water from the Murray river out to the other side where there were small creek beds 

Look at that water pumping 

I did wonder if it would affect the river but plenty of water here 

Pump causing a LOT of noise.....luckily we could only faintly hear it from where we were camped....

We are down the river on the left......

With lucky not closer or we would of had to move on

We took a drive to look around other parts as were were camped near Swan Hill for info and visited Lake Boga and look at all these Pelicans......

I was pretty happy seeing them and taking a few snaps ☺

A small bridge in the town of Swan Hill 

Crossing the Murray River.....then back to camp we went

Lit a fire again although not needed for warmth but a plan to cook on the open fire ☺

Lovely evening again......we did end up cooking some chicken kebabs with some onion to have with our got a bit crazy with a few flames and by the time all settled cooking I forgot to take a photo.....but can tell you it was all YUM lol

Next morning we said goodbye to our distant Pelican ♥ to head to our next spot

Arriving into Echuca and drove through Moama echucamoama info

This camp spot is at the golf club and as long as you are a member you can stay for a night or 2 
over the 3 year membership......very handy for a meal out as just a short stroll ☺☺

Back into Echuca for a bit of a look around....

They run 3 paddle steamers here although not all steam now

The tree that marks prior flood levels of the Murray river.....the top mark is 1870 then 1975 and 1974 so some pretty amazing levels......

Pride of the Murray Paddle

Back at the Winnie the man relaxing before we headed over to the club for a good meal ☺
Again thank you for coming over and hope you enjoyed your visit xoxoxo


  1. You found some lovely camping spots. Aren't pelicans fun to watch! We are having a gentle steady rain today so I am hoping our ponds will fill again so that the water fowl will come visit us.Thanks for posting, Wendy xx

    1. I do hope you get the much needed rain Gracie, we are headed to summer and looks like it is going to be very hot and little rain predicted xo

  2. I always enjoy visiting you down under! Loved the pelicans! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Thankyou so much for leaving a comment, it really makes my day ☺☺♥♥
