Dog on the Tucker Box…

Well I’ve left the “big smoke” behind and pointed myself westward towards Mungo National Park to watch the lunar eclipse in a couple of days.

But hey, with time on my side what better way to wile away that time than being camped beside the mighty Murrumbidgee River at Gundagai reading poems and short stories by one of Australia’s greatest story tellers, Henry Lawson.

And of course, apart from the river the town is famous for the “Dog on the Tucker Box”…

    I missed the lunar eclipse here. We’re in our winter rainy season now. We were lucky with the solar eclipse being last August when there is nary a cloud in the sky.

    Enjoy your vacation!

    Spent a sweltering summer day there a few years ago. Unfortunately the ear has broken off my dog on the tucker box fridge magnet… 😦

        That’s really kind, but don’t worry about it. It’s a good excuse for me to go back there one day!

    Love Gundagai. I remember when the old bridges were still used. The river is lovely there, & the van park we usually stay at is right on the banks of it.
    Enjoy your trip – and I hope the clouds stay away for the night of the eclipsed blue moon. 🙂
