Comfy camping

2 Comments Victoria (VIC)

The same day we arrived in Melbourne after leaving Adelaide we took the train and bus up to Strathmerton (around 240 km from Melbourne) to go camping along the Murray River. We had a couple of nice days just hanging out at camp. It was relaxing doing nothing, just sit around the fire talking, go for a swim, read a book, drink beer and watch a movie at night on the big screen. That’s what I call comfy camping.

It’s pretty by the river.

Mt Lofty & Cleland Wildlife Park

2 Comments Adelaide, South Australia (SA)

Another great day down under is almost over. Not that hot today, “only” around 26 degrees so it was actually a perfect day for today’s adventures which offered a trip to Mt Lofty and a visit to Cleland Wildlife Park as well as my first bodyboarding attempt. I think I caught more seawater in my mouth than I caught waves during the last one though but at least I had fun trying.
