I know the dams at the top of the Murray River are very low, but there is still water in the lower reaches of the system.
Today I visited the so-called Murray Mouth which is part of the Coorong National Park.
We then drove around the western perimeter of the huge estaurine lake system.
While the national consensus appears to be that some sort of catastrophe is about to befall this region — interestingly there are new housing developments and new olive orchards and more…
Crossed the ferry at Wellington – what I think is the real Murray mouth.
And there was also water in the river a bit upstream of Wellington.
I’ll be back in Brisbane tomorrow. And many thanks to Phil Sawyer for a great few days in South Australia.
