Today we rambled over the tracks in Kinchega National Park which sits just outside Menindee along the Darling River and beside the Menindee Lakes system. The lakes are very high after the flood and many of the tracks are closed as they are still covered with water. Birds everywhere and the bush is very green, with some flowers making early appearances. Inspected the old woolshed here for a while before having some bbq snags for lunch beside the lakes. Pretty chilly day and another cold night coming up, skies are a clear deep blue which really contrasts with the red soils and green plants. We head off tomorrow for a couple of nights on a farm stay a little further downstream. Have attached a photo showing our sleeping accommodation which is very cosy, Russell has the top bunk and Leanne the more enticing lower level accommodation. There is supposedly room for a third person in here, but I’m not quite sure where she would fit in, at a squeeze she would probably fit into the top bunk ok.

Hi there guys – have enjoyed reading the blog – especially laughed at the conundrum (Burke & Wills)! Very cold here too but at least we have a heater!!! I’ll bet the motel felt 5 stars Leanne? Enjoy we are thinking of you…Cheryle xoxo
It’s pretty chilly here at home too, although no where near what you must be experiencing!! Enjoying my warm dressing gown and a hot cup of coffee at the moment :o)
