A week in Mildura

So after spending a week in Adelaide, we set off early one Saturday morning on our roadtrip to Mildura, Victoria. Aunty Doris kindly invited us to her timeshare there for a weeks holiday 🙂

As the journey was 5 hours, we stopped in Waikerie for a cuppa & some lunch, by the river. I had read all about Waikerie from Jodie at thelittlebackpacker.com.  David and Doris both drove to split up the journey, which was fun as David nor I had drove an automatic before! During our week in Mildura, the weather was in the mid 20s most days, and we spent our time exploring the local area, relaxing by the pool, playing pitch n putt, tennis, drinking moscato, visited Renmark, took a boat cruise from Wentworth down the Murray River, met our friends Davy & Joanna who had just got engaged at Ayers Rock! and visited Wentworth jail and Mungo National Park (more about this later)
