I forgot to take a photo of our camp spot at Red Cliffs before I did the blog, the park is next to a vineyard and also the local sports grounds ...
this morning we had a lovely sunrise, although I was very reluctant to get out of bed to enjoy it, but I did!
From here we sort of zig zagged our way around Mildura following the tourist route and all signs that point to Wentworth.
Along the way we passed some grapes being dried on the racks - we think we have passed here before and taken a photo of this exact rack (coming across from South Australia 2011)
We took a quick break at Merbein and I took a photo of Neil standing next to the sign - apparently this is where is grandmother grew up - he couldn't remember if she was born here.
Riding through Merbein and onto Yelta was very scenic (hence why it is a tourist route!) and there are big houses with big vineyards! At Yelta you cross over the Murray ...
Wentworth is a population of around 1400 and is the first or last (depends on what direction you are going) before Broken Hill.
The campground is at the junction where the Darling River enters the Murray River - we will walk later on tonight to have a look at that. But in the meantime we have an unpowered site and I tell you it is just the best site ever for $20...
We are having a rest day here tomorrow.
