Berri

Monday 21st March. (Berri).

A fair bit of car racing on telly over the weekend filled in a bit of my time, but we did get to see some of the area, with a walk around town taking photos on Saturday, and Sunday being a usual rest day. We went to Renmark, and that district, for a tour today and the scenery is just as breathtaking all around that district as well. We also went to a small township of Monash that boasts an amusement park, and the boasting is well justified. The park is actually free entry, and offers what would be magnificent facilities for kids to keep them well occupied for ages. There are all sorts of play gear, a maze being the first that we have tried and it was easy, and there was even a flying fox that I am sure would keep some people well and truly occupied.

We are at present beginning talks of upgrading the caravan to something that would be more suited to our needs. Not that there is anything dramatically wrong with this baby, but things like dual axle, a real oven and something a little smaller would be handy, so we are going to have a look around on our travels from here on.

We have found that there are heaps of free camping areas in this area, like around Lake Bonney at Barmera has free camping all around the lake. The unfortunate part though is most places are sandy and unsuitable for taking the caravan. A lot of free camping areas are also similar, hence another reason for thinking of a dual axle van that would be more suited for gravel and dirt roads.
