Default Flinders Ranges via Mungo & Broken Hill

Finally left yesterday afternoon after changing the engine oil and filter at the last minute!
Stayed at Mt Alexander Regional Park last night. Arrive in Ouyen this afternoon. Tomorrow I'll be heading to Mungo National Park.

I take it that you are going to MNP via Mildura given your heading.

I was raised in Balranald and never ever went to MNP, closest I ever got to it was Hatfield - Ivanhoe - Pooncarie and a property called Bidura, where I used to shoot roo's and rabbits with my Father.

Been at Mungo for the last couple of days. Very enjoyable. At Pooncarie for a fuel and lunch stop then off to Menindee.
Subyroo you didn't shoot enough rabbits there are still too many out there!
Ateday I'll let you know when I leave Broken Hill.
Haven't had phone reception or internet until now, not a bad thing though!

Camping at Lake Pamamaroo near Menindee tonight. Been watching the sunset over the lake. Thanks Pedro for the suggestion !
Had a great drive from Mungo to here today, well worth it.
Photos to follow eventually !

Depending on the price it might be worth the money to go back into the game, last time I sold any to the buyer we got 55c/pr (or 5 shillings and sixpence in my days ).

Arrived in Broken Hill yesterday and have been exploring the town and went out to Day Dream mine and Silverton. Checked out the Mad Max museum and had lunch at the pub.
Off to South Australia tomorrow and probably stay at Peterborough.
