Leaving Mildura Caravan Park we had a bit of a mishap. We were parked close to a tree and when pulling out I couldn’t see any way to avoid the tree with the back end of the van. I probably should have walked away and had a bit of a think, rather than persisting with the direction I had taken. Luckily the damage is not too bad.
The drive to Broken Hill was an easy one – at some stage I had cruise control set to 95km/h for 74 kilometres without having to touch either break or accelerator. By the way the legal top speed of our caravan is 100km/h.
Lesley found us an unpowered spot in a caravan park fairly close to the city. We set up camp (we were the only ones in the unpowered section) and drove into Broken Hill for a look around. Of course Broken Hill is famous for it’s mining background, although today I don’t think there is too much mining going on anymore. But there is plenty of history still there.
