About to leave Wentworth on the way home

Confluence of the Darling and Murray Rivers, Darling enters from the left

Last night for us here in Wentworth and starting to get known at the Wentworth Services  Club, off there tonight for the Sunday roast dinner special. The last couple of days we have spent charging around town seeing all things that you have to see. Leanne likes ticking places off the ‘Historical tour mud maps’ as we see them, it’s a bit like a shopping list I suppose. Some of the places are very interesting others leave you wondering why it’s on the list eg the old rubbish tip at Wentworth is a highlight on a run around a lagoon/wet land drive, successful rehab I suppose.

The Darling River Run ends here in Wentworth at the junction of the Darling and Murray rivers. The Darling is a muddy river, not brown like the Brisbane River but a milky clay like colour. The Murray is less muddy and has a clearer bluer like colour. Where they meet there is a clear line between the river flows before they commingle at the weir and lock below the junction.Flood waters are  still gushing over the rim of the weir on their way to the sea.

We have spent 13 nights on the Run, starting in Bourke and ending at Wentworth, 8 of which were enjoyed in the van at chilly camping grounds,  Station stays and also at Mungo NP; the other 5 in motels.  The trip home will be a motel run up the Kidman

Way to Burke and then through to Brisbane.
