With a couple of days of perfect camping weather forecast, I decided to get out and try another local caravan park, Morning Glory (ahem!).
I was lucky enough to be the only person in the main powered section, along the riverside amongst the river red gums (though not right under one). An expansive, grassy green area, this is usually packed with caravans. It was lovely to have such a beautiful, spacious area to myself.
The campsite stretches along the Murray quite some distance. There’s a completely separate camping section about a kilometre downriver, past a series of cabins, a function centre and boat ramp. And at the end of that lies a large sandy beach, providing great bathing access to the river.
Fire drums are provided, and you can buy wood from the store. You can also buy some basics and borrow DVDs, books and games or sporting equipment to use with the various facilities on site.
Of most interest to me was the opportunity for good walks. There are a couple of roughly 5km circuit walks around the property. And about 2.5 km down one of the tracks is a beautiful wetland.
Although I wasn’t keen on the last 6km of the drive to Morning Glory – a pretty badly corrugated stretch of dirt road – I’ll certainly be back.
