We began our journey following the Murray River from Albury to where it meets the sea in South Australia by traveling from our home town of Griffith, NSW along the Sturt Highway until we reached the tiny town of Collingullie. Here we turned off and went south through the small towns of The Rock, Henty and Culcairn before finally arriving in Albury.
Albury provides a free camp for self contained vehicles only in the car park of the SS&A Club and, although it’s only a car park, the best feature is that it is very central to downtown Albury and walking distance to most things including the SS&A Club, shopping centres and the new Harris Farm Markets. We’ve camped in car parks before in the USA. It is quite a common thing to camp in Walmart car parks over there.
We used our ebikes to follow a bike path along the creek behind the High School, through the gorgeous Botanic Gardens, past the Swimming Pool and down to the river. There is parkland all along the banks of the river which is flowing very fast and seemed to us to be at a high level. Lots of families were out enjoying the sunny day. There were kids on scooters and bikes, families picnicking, the town band was playing and lots of people were walking their dogs. We rode across the bridge and crossed into Victoria before returning back the way we came. We love our ebikes.
