Clarke Lagoon Reserve

This terrific camp area on the Upper Murray River was recommended to us by a fellow traveller and it was beautiful. The water here is crystal clear. Camping here we are blessed with the sounds of birds of many species but particularly the raucous cries of the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo that are here in great numbers. There are also cattle grazing in the Reserve to keep the under growth in control. What they don't eat they trample under foot. One must be careful to avoid the many "pats" they leave scattered around.

The magic view looking Upstream.

It is also a magic view looking Downstream.

There was a large fish of some type living around this clump of trees on the bank. The fish was continually jumping and didn't seem to travel very far from this spot.

A gnarled old branch on this Gum Tree.

This is Aquarius the water carrier. Collecting water to refill our Caravan Tanks.

It was a little bit of a hike to the Caravan. Took about eight buckets to top up the tanks. I pumped the water through a filter and it was fine for us to use. Tasted OK too.
