Portarlington to Wodonga

The room in Wodonga was very large with a large veranda overlooking a playground and a BBQ area.
The next day we went in search of a wildlife park we had read about and Reagan really enjoyed it. They had all sorts of animals and we got to feed Kangaroos and watch the Koalas being fed. I had hoped when visiting this region to take a cruise on the Murray River on a paddle steamer and luckily for us due to recent rains the boat had started running again. The cruise was really nice and very relaxing. This river along as acting as a border between two states of Australia used to act as a shipping channel, but only when it was running, which sometimes was only 8 months of the year. The paddle steamer we travelled on was like the ones they used to use 150 years ago and only required 1 metre of water to travel, but this unforgiving river often had less water than that or was dry. These days a lot of it has been dammed and it is now used as a major source of water.
That was about it for our stay at Albury Wodonga, tomorrow we start our travels into New South Wales. I’ll try not to make too many jokes about them… but it’ll be hard.
