Outback Adventures with the Wrays!
By Toby & Molly
Mildura (Victoria) x 3 nights
Melrose (South Australia) x 2 nights
Kilometres travelled so far - 1,028km.
The Rothbury Paddlesteamer on the
Murray River - Mildura
The paddlesteamer only needs 1 metre of water to move in.
Toby and Molly inside the wheelhouse steering.
We had to go through a loch that opens and closes the gates to let the paddle steamers through.
Perry Sand Dunes
There is a very big tree in the middle called the God tree.
Rolling hills to climb and slide down.
We tried to slide down the hills on some cardboard but it didn't work so we rolled down.
There are 500 types of oranges. There is an orange the size of a melon. You only need 4 people to pick 10,000 orange and mandarine trees.
Inside Orange World where they sort them.
When we went to Orange World and we had a drink of orange squuezed fresh from the orange and a mandarine to eat.
Mt Remarkable - Melrose South Australia
We walked to the summit that took 5 hours and was over 12 kilometres.
Kangaroo jumping across the path.
We did a big hike but there was no view at the top just a big pile of rocks. We were so dissapointed!
