After a very restless and sleepless night due to the temperature and total lack of breeze it was a bit of a slow start to the morning watching the boaties drive on by hoping for a good catch on the river. We managed to get our act together and head off to the other side of the park to check out the historic Kinchega woolshed.
There’s lots of old machinery, tools and equipment on the grounds and inside the woolshed giving a really good insight into how the old shed would have functioned.
Sometime before the 1920’s the western end of the Woolshed was demolished, and the shed would have been twice the size of the current Woolshed.
From the woolshed we took the river road back to camp
The old Homestead
From the homestead ruins we drove the remainder of “River Drive” heading out of the park and back out to the main road.
Menindee Lake System
After exiting the park, we headed off to see if there was any water in Lake Menindee. We managed to find a way to get somewhat close to the water.
From Lake Menindee we headed out to Copi Dam and across to Lake Pamamaroo and Main Weir.
After checking out the lakes we headed back to camp hoping for a breeze, which thankfully we found. We also got a lovely sunset over the river.
