Another 220km finds me in Barooga on the Murray River. BUT my usual fav spot is crowded out with young adults. Very noisy, lots of vehicle movements and lots of dust.
So, time to remember its also about going to new places and finding new spots. Eventually found a spot overlooking the river but with a high bank and no water access. Just me and a caravan with Peter and Evonne from Condobolin aboard. Quieter, will do for tonight.
Cobram is a large vibrant town on the Victoria side of the Murray River and has lots to offer the residents and tourist alike. Good shopping where you can get most anything. Barooga on the NSW side is a small community but together they make a great destination for holidays or touring.
Some communities, like Wagga Wagga, pull down their old bridges when a new one goes in. Good to see here in Cobram-Barooga they decided to keep theirs as a pedestrian bridge and reminder of the past and our history along the Murray River.
