Nyah, Victoria.

On leaving Echuca, our plan was to camp along the Murray River near Koondrook or Barham. We duly entered the Coordinates into the GPS for both these camp areas in turn and on each occasion achieved a similar result. We were absolutely led up the garden path, so to speak. We were driving through deeply rutted tracks looking for the elusive riverside camp area. Fortunately for us we found a turning space and beat a hasty retreat from that part of the river.

We had received great reviews of the camp area at Nyah, beside the Nyah Harness Club. That is where we now headed for. This is a huge area and can accommodate numerous RVs. There are toilets and a Dump Point and fresh drinking water is also available The town of Nyah asks for a donation to camp here and talking to some of the locals many campers do drop folding money into the Donation Box alongside the Dump Point. There is also riverside camping along The Murray River here but it is fairly shaded by the River Red Gums. We stayed away from that area to achieve maximum sun on the solar panels. We met up with Graeme and Sandy again here after our chance meeting at Barmah Lakes.

On the route to Nyah we stopped in Kerang at this beautiful park for lunch. Judy just loves these smooth barked Gum Trees.

The Murray River at Nyah. Substantially less water here and very slow moving as well.

A close-up look of The Harness Club Building. They have a Rose Garden here too.

It seems Nyah is the cross roads to everywhere, jet contrails criss-cross the skies over Nyah.

The CMCA is conducting a Rally in Robinvale in early April so the "Motor Homers" are beginning to congregate around the surrounding areas waiting for the gates to open. We are towards the back of this area. The Murray River flows through the trees in the background.

Another of the three main camp areas other than camping along the river bank..
