When the water was released the spot where we are camped was submerged with 2 metres of water—you can see the marks on the tree trunks. Fortunately they give campers warning before any major releases!
Whilst it looks like an isolated spot (and it is lovely and quiet) each day brings something new. One day around a dozen small boats came chugging into view. They belong to a group of folks from South Australia who have an annual 4 week get-together along the Murray River. This year's trip is from Yarrawonga to Echuca, only around 150kms by road, but many hundred by the twisting river, it had taken them 2 days to travel from Yarrawonga (a 30 minute car journey).
