Friday 7th June 2013 - Mildura/Buronga - Renmark - Morgan

Today we intended to farewell NSW and Victoria and head back into South Australia, figuring that as we missed going to Ramco Point near Waikerie on the way down we would try for it this time, as it was one of the sites in our "bible" that was highly recommended.

We hugged the river as much as we could towards Renmark, grabbed a few supplies there, and belatedly realised this was the Queen's birthday long weekend. There were a few sites near Renmark we dropped into, but they were starting to fill up, and weren't particularly salubrious, with the recent rains muddying things up a bit. So we continued on, finding the same situation as we went along. We finally came to the conclusion that we weren't going to find any free camping spots and would have to resort to yet another caravan park, and as they day wore on we settled on the park next to the Morgan ferry. As there was still a high likelihood of continued rain, we were pretty keen on a grassy site that wouldn't puddle too much.

We got a site at the end of a nice stretch of thick grass, glad it was at the end as the sites were very cramped in. Fortunately the neighbours were quiet, and the only disturbance during the night was the occasional clanging of the ferry.
