Along the River Darling, Australia



Received a phone call ............................. "fancy a ride up the River, Darling"

Actually it was from the Riverland Adventure Riders after our last enjoyable foray Ghost Town Rally, Copi Hollow, NSW. Sep 2011

Unfortunately the locals were dropping like flys at the last minute with only the usual 3 amigos + 1, still fit enough for the ride
............. errr! well? .............................. just anyway.

So us three city slickers headed east over the ranges in their most lush state





Stopping off at the Mannum Waterfalls for morning tea



and on through the fabulous tracks of Bakara Well



A new tourist attraction ............. "The Riverland Pyramids"



Starting our ramble from Renmark



It wasn't long before the natives became restless



So we called time-out inspecting the "Suicide Bridge" just off The Old Coach Road to Wentworth







Our first encounter with a road train



Luckily the wind was from the right direction



We weren't too sure about Damien's experience though ............................... "Did you do that on the ground?"



It wasn't long before we reached the the outlet for Cawdilla Lake, just south of Menindee



But we were obviously late arriving in Menindee ...................................... no one was home



to be continued ..................
