We left Swan Hill with the intention of finding a nice spot somewhere near the Robinvale/Euston area. We hugged the river as much as we could, ducking into numerous dirt tracks and discovering the places that we could go would be fairly muddy, so continued on. We eventually settled on a spot called Begg's Bend about 50km south of Mildura, a nice wide sandy beach. We drove onto the beach to see how far we would go without lowering tyre pressures, which wasn't much. Of course, that was the time a local pulled up to watch the procedure, obviously thinking we didn't have a clue what we were doing.
We chatted to him for a bit, but with the sun going down quickly, we let him know that all was good and continued sorting the camp out. It was a lovely evening under the million star light show, plus a good fire.
