Happy New year everyone!!!!

Just wondering how the campers went out at the Great Aussie Resort and where did everyone else camp out over the break.

we want to do a 3 to 4 day trip before the kids get back to school thinking maybe echuca or somewhere like that

I spent three days at Falls Creek in a campsite about 12k south of the village, nice shade and running water, had a long drop as well. Lots of nice walks and drives visiting old huts and gazeing over the high plains.

From there up to the Murray near Rutherglen (wineries) for another couple of days. Falls was the pick of the spots.

We found that picking a spot with good afternoon shade was the best, canvas tends to get a bit hot and makes the inside a bit like a sauna, open all the windows and storm flaps if you have them this helps as well with air flow. Now get out there and have fun. Oh take some Rid the flies are a bugger.

Sat by the river just upstream from Richardson's Bend on the Murray. They were releasing more water than usual making the water a bit cold but had a great time anyway. I have not been to the Resort mentioned above ( it's not far from us) but have heard pretty good things about it. Was there much water there in the Hume Weir?

We spent a week base camped at Crooked River, did heaps of high country day trips from there, Blue Rag Range, Billy Goat Bluff to the Pinnacles, Mount Wellington Track to Miller's Hut & on the Sentinels. Also checked out heaps of mines in the Crooked River area.
One thing that really surprised us was the lack campers in the area. Was the quietest that I have ever seen it!
