Wednesday 5th June 2013 - Beggs Bend - Buronga

We figured we would cross the border back into NSW in time for State of Origin, with a greater likelihood of finding somewhere with it on in NSW than in Victoria. A bit of 'net research indicated the Buronga Caravan Park, across the river from Mildura, was very dog friendly, so we chose to go there for a couple of nights.

On top of packing back up, we also had to extricate ourselves from the sandy beach and then resupply the tyres back to road pressures, which took about 45 minutes. While Paul sorted that out, I took the boys for a walk downstream. Once the tyres were back to normal, we headed into Mildura, grabbed a quick bite to eat then crossed the border to the CP and were all set up by mid afternoon.

Right from the start, we could tell this was a caravan park like no other, people were friendly without being intrusive, everyone had dogs that were mostly well behaved, the park offered portable fire pits, the sites were large and the place was spotlessly clean. We also discovered the camp kitchen had a tv, and, as we had 3 lots of leftovers, figured that would be an ideal dinner using their microwave to heat them up.

The only thing that would have topped off the day would have been if Queensland won. Never mind, there are two more games to go...
