Thinking about filling in the gap between the two by following a long-standing desire to visit Mildura, which probably sounds odd.
When I was a kid, I used see the weather reports on the TV and almost ALWAYS the warmest temperature for the whole of Victoria was recorded in Mildura. As a child I imagined it to be some kind of paradise as a result.
I'm not under any delusions that it's actually like that, but I've still never actually been there and I owe Little Mike a visit.
@mike Mildura isn't a bad little town. Good if you like citrus fruit too.
Not sure I'd want to *live* there, but as somewhere to visit, it's ok.
@dadegroot yeah "warm" and "full of oranges" is pretty much my childhood vision of the place and frankly that is enough for me, heh.
Hoping to find a quiet spot near the river to camp a night or two before leaving the state.
@mike It was always a welcome site when driving from Adelaide to Sydney. There isn't much west of there for quite a way, and bugger all east for a few hours ;-)
Consider this a friendly, local pub. Make yourself at home, bring your friends, have a good time! Meet new people, have a laugh, enjoy the ambience, and the Oxford commas.
