We stopped at the lovely town of Morgan, right on the Murray River. It has many historic buildings and a lovely park by the river where the railway station used to be. Remnants of the old wharf which the paddle steamers used can still be seen.
We drove on from Morgan and could see storms building all around us with lots of rain.
We remained spectators however as the rain fell all around us but not on us. A few big drops fell, the wipers went on and then it just fizzled out!
We made our next stop at a lovely free camp called Plush's Bend right on the river near Renmark. The camping area was quite large and you are allowed to stay for up to 7 days which is quite unusual. We found a great spot under the gum trees. We didn't bother unhitching the van as we were only staying for one night.
The next day we set off again and made a short stop at Mildura. We then crossed the river and were back in NSW with over 17000 kms on the clock from our trip. We passed lots of grape vines in this area and then went through more wheat country.
We had planned to stop for our last night in Bathurst, however, we were so close to home we just decided to keep going. It was a long drive.

and Erin and Oli were waiting out the front of our house to greet us when we arrived.
The trip meter reached 18,326 kms. We had a great time and saw the most amazing things. Living in the caravan was very easy. Its a great way to travel as you have the freedom to stop where ever you want.
Whenever I go away I always think that things are going to change while I'm gone but mostly things stay the same, which is good. Its lovely to be back with family and friends.
Thanks to all of you who have been following our trip. Its been great fun to share our experiences and photos with you.
