Wednesday 29th May 2013 - Echuca - Barham

Today we intended to camp at Gunbower Island, about an hour north west of Echuca. We did a drive around, but maybe our standards were getting high, but the place just wasn't nearly as picturesque as Paradise Beach. Nearly all the vistas across the water were of other people's homes on properties or of a caravan park. The weather report wasn't looking so good, with a high chance of rain, and we figured we would be a bit miserable if we were camped in mud.

So we continued on to the town of Barham, across into NSW, and found a pleasant little caravan park with sites right on the river bank. We had just about finished setting up when we were joined next to us by another camper trailer. As we put our feet up and cracked open a cider, we heard a "stop rubbing it in" so we invited them across for some bikes and cheese when they were done. Bob and Coral were from Adelaide, travelling to Melbourne to visit their daughter, and were very pleasant neighbours for the 2 days we stayed.
