I’m really glad I took the time to visit Mungo. It is really off the beaten path and is far from the “Wicked” camper van circuit. I’m also glad I paid for a guided tour. Had I gone out by myself, it could have been a potential disaster. It is 100 km of unpaved road with no buildings or stops on the way. It is hot, flat, desert. Factor in the cost of fuel, and it was well worth it. Not to mention our guide was great. He was an aboriginal man from the area who has been working in the park in every possible capacity for years.

I’m going to have to sit down for a few hours soon to plow through all the photos I’ve taken. Some of the ones from Mungo should turn out amazing. The sand dunes at sunset were really incredible.

Today I drove from Mildura to Bendigo in central Victoria. This is the heart of wine country in Victoria. I think I’ll visit a few wineries tomorrow before heading to Mount Kosciuszko.

My drive today was very hot and dusty. I encountered several dust devils and dust clouds which covered the road. Australia has been experiencing a drought for several years now and it seems pretty evident where I’ve been so far.

I also got my fill of rural Australian radio. It is pretty similar to rural radio in the US. Commodity prices this, fertilizer prices that.

I have 5 days to get to Sydney. I think I’m in good shape.
