The Murrumbidgee River, snaking its way across a Sunburnt Land…

Finally, we have again broken the boundaries of our urban existence, making our way into the great Australian Outback where deep blue skies touch a red ochre land on a faraway horizon.

The country is green after much needed rains and the mighty Murrumbidgee River is flowing, snaking its way across a sunburnt land.

The Murrumbidgee has been the lifeblood to both first nations people of Australia and in more recent times to European settlers.  And we are taking advantage of a beautiful campsite alongside the “Bidgee” at Sandy Point near the township of Hay in Western New South Wales.

About us…

We love the colours of the Australian Outback, the ochre red earth touching a deep blue sky on a faraway horizon; and the fabulous coastline of our sunburnt country, where a golden sandy beach is washed over by a turquoise blue sea; and the characters you meet in a quiet country pub, where it is nothing flash, but you are enriched by the encounter…

In 2017 we decided it was time to “graduate from work” and re-enter “the classroom of life” where an education is guaranteed and all that is needed is an open mind.

Thanks for joining us in the adventure…!

Cheers, Baz & Janet

      Hi Warren, glad we could rekindle the memory. Will probably go via Maude today, especially since you highlighted it. Cheers Baz

    A beautiful river and land. I am glad the rains have come to renew and restore.

    We are coming out of our rainy period now, and into the summer heat in our area. The minor oscillations within the general shift in weather patterns is keeping us all on our toes.
