We decided to take a trip to Berri where I lived for three years, it’s developed so much over the last 50 years there was nothing I recognized. A bridge has replaced the ferry, the hotel has been modernised and houseboats can now be moored near the town, there’s even a shopping centre with Aldi!
After exploring Berri we drove back towards Loxton stopping at Lock 4, Bookpurnong. You an find information on the reason for the locks, their construction etc here.
Back in Loxton we enjoyed a short walk from the wharf along the riverside. Nearby is the Pioneer Village but we didn’t go inside.
That walk was only a teaser so we headed towards the Caravan Park stopping at the Boat Ramp from where we walked along the Nature Trail and through the Arboretum before looping back to the car. Large diameter hoses lined most of the trails but they seemed to be no longer functional, maybe that’s why there was so little water in some parts.
