Echuca Trip - Barmah State Forest

A short trip out from Moama is the Barmah State Forest, somewhere I have always wanted to see...certainly wasn't disappointed as it is an unusually beautiful area... incredibly old river red gums, ghostly grey on the flood plains...


















Echuca Trip - Echuca & Moama

Everything revolves around the rivers in Echuca...(both the Murray and Campaspe rivers)
It was unusually hot for October and everyone is saying it is going to be the 'Godzilla of El Nino's' this year... bummer.. back to the dry and crispy...
Despite the dry conditions, you also see a lot of evidence of recent floods as well. A trip on a paddle steamer a highlight of the trip and seeing how tenaciously the trees hold on to the riverbanks amazing...
