Week 441 - Kyffen Reserve

2017-12-30 to 2018-01-05

Last week we were camped at Jugiong awaiting the New Year.  But arrival of the new year turned out to be a bit of a fizzer.  The scheduled fireworks didn't arrive, so 2018 snuck in through the back door.

New Year's Day we packed up and headed South West to Holbrook to visit John, Pam, Dave and Henry.  It was exactly one year ago that we house sat here in remote Holbrook and unfortunately the township and the RSC have not progressed, in fact the RSC have taken a step backwards in the food department.  However, I was compensated by a few pints of Furphy's, a Victorian brewed beer with lots of body and lots of taste.

Our journey continued to Howlong, to a fantastic dump point.  Now what can be good about a dump point?  This one had plenty of room for us to maneouvre and our black hose could reach without a problem.  After emptying the black, we could flush out our black and grey tanks with fresh water - a chore we haven't been able to do for some time.

So with all tanks empty and sparkling clean, we continued west to Kyffen Reserve, 32 kms west of Corowa, to Lake Mulwala.

Lake Mulwala is a man made lake off the Murray River and obviously flooded a forest of gums, so at sunset it is quite spectacular.

We are now well and truely away from the cities and suburbia and the tranquility of the lake is a great reminder of the beauty of this country.
