The old bridge built in 1867.
This old bridge was used until Feb 2003!
On the wrong side, easy to get in , hard to get out!
After that stop we headed staright to gaol!

Sounds in the cell were intense!
The eye is upon you!
Awful conditions, especially for the poor.

Oppressive atmosphere, even now.
Bend over and take your punishment!
Aboriginal tools and artefacts displayed.
The first “prison”.
After the gaol we went down to the riverbank precinct.
The River Darling joins the River Murray at this point.

It was time to head back to the oasis, there was …..
The muddy sheep to get moving.
Rams to check.
Tracks to follow.
Chooks to feed.
Tractors to park.
A bike to ride.
