Early start packing up at 630am. Warm in bed last night but lot of condensation on our ceiling. We were on the road by 720am. Long way to go today. Stopped for coffee at Minyip (home of the flying doctor) and bought some bread, bananas and dog food at the local IGA. Interesting sculpture in town roundabout. Long drive through many towns and past several of the painted silos found in this part of Victoria. Also drove through Warracknabeal (home of Nick Cave). Finally arrived at Merbein common near Mildura. After searching for our friends camp spot we set up our home for next 3 days. A great free site on edge of Murray river ( Victorian side of course).
