We were woken again by the bird life here in the Park, but thankfully no rain. There are so many different birds that we took a photo of the Identification Board.
It was not raining this morning but when we checked the Bureau Of Meteorology website, we could see that there is some very heavy rain on the way on Saturday, currently forecast for 30 to 50 mm for this region.
As we were planning to free-camp for the next few days, we quickly reviewed our plans, and decided to book in here at Buronga for at least another 2 nights. That being the case we unhitched the caravan and put up the awning for some protection from the weather.
We originally stayed here in 2006 when the current owners had just taken over what was then a very run down park in a fantastic setting with million dollar river views. At that time we were one of 8 vans in the park that week. We came back here in 2010 and the changes were amazing. We were one of several hundred vans that year.
This year, the place is even more amazing. Multiple swimming pools, multiple camp kitchens, great facilities, tennis courts, multiple playgrounds, jumping pillow and a small farm. The many trees have grown and the many gardens are everywhere. Despite all these improvements, there is still a really friendly atmosphere that makes Buronga Riverside Caravan Park a great place to stay at a very affordable price.
After enjoying some farm fresh eggs (purchased here) for lunch, we made a brief excursion into Mildura for a quick walk through the town centre and to pick up a few supplies.
All in all today was a very easy day and we were both able to catch up on some walking and reading.
Tomorrow promises to be wet, but we are well set up to hunker down inside the van all day if necessary.
