Murray Bridge

Hi everyone

Looking for some quick replies to this.

I have a few days spare and am looking to drive from Wagga Wagga in NSW to Murray Bridge in South Aussie and back. I have three days.

The trip will take in the following towns to give you some idea of the route I will be taking:

NSW
Wagga Wagga
Hay
Tooleybuc

Victoria
Piangil
Ouyen

South Aussie
Tallem Bend
Monteith
Long Flat
Murray Bridge

Plan is to drive straight through to Murray Bridge from here. Roughly nine and a half hours. Spend the day around Murray Bridge and surrounds on Saturday and drive back Sunday. Want to have a look at the mouth of the mighty Murray before it silts up totally. May even slip into Adelaide.

Looking for a little advice as to what would be interesting to look at along the way. Will have a last check here about 9:30 tonight as I will be on the road early tomorrow.

Cheers


Derek

Gee that's some driving. However the river is always worth a look. The mouth is still a fair way down near Goolwa or on the other side out from the Coorong. From Goolwa its a short hop to Victor Harbour which puts you on the Fleurieu Peninsula. Its not a long drive into the Adelaide Hills. Hahdorf is always worth a look.

Safe driving :grin:

I'm back. Was a great trip with just over 2500klm. Went to Adelaide on the first day, down to Apollo Bay the second and home the third. Saw flocks of emus up to 100 along the malle areas, wedge tailed eagles and beautiful parrots galor. I loved the Coorong area, all that water. Great Ocean Road is also not to be missed although I did run out of daylight as I just had to stop at every lookout along the way. Would have loved to have seen the fur seal colony and Portlond. In all reality though to see all of that properly should take a month or more.

Next time maybe. Oh yeah, just love that ring road around Melbourne.

Boy you must love driving. It took me 2 weeks to do GOR -Coorong-Adelaide and home via Murray Valley (but then I am a grey nomad in training) :)
