Pipe now fixed and no drip and started the hot water service, it's LP Gas and I installed the 9kg gas bottle off the caravan. Mind you the cold water like having a hot shower the last three days we have had a cold shower and the water be over 30c.

5G coming, and there is talk it will be tested in White Cliffs, The race is on to roll out 5G for mobile users but let's get a few things straight — it's not like this technology will magically turn the phone in your pocket into a super-fast wireless wonder gadget overnight.

The nation's two largest telcos, Optus and Telstra, are leading the globe in 5G, announcing testing of their capabilities on big crowds at the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Queensland with plans to roll out the service to consumers in 2019.

The two telcos have talked up what a difference the technology will make for both individual consumers and big business but let's put the hype aside for a moment and figure out what it actually means for you right now.

March 26th Monday 2018

This morning I met with the Broken Hill City Council Archives Office, you see the Broken Hill have a Archives for White Cliffs. The Archives section is not open to the public and it goes back over 150yr's maybe longer. I say almost no one in White Cliffs has seen the council collection on our town.

Carol and I seen part of it late last year and today I met with the Archives Office of Council and we are going to setup a small display with the help of Broken Hill Council in White Cliffs in July this year. We are running it at the same time as the White Cliffs Art Festival in July this year.

The collection should be in White Cliffs but the truth is there is know where in White Cliffs for such a large display in July I have on display about 1% of what's there.

 

From Bernie on the Hume Weir Raceway:
A bit more Hume Dam history. The raceway operated from 1959 to 1977. Originally dirt, then tarred. Races featured some notable names in them days car racing. Yesterday I mentioned this to a good friend of mine in Howlong, Mike Johnson, 72. He raced motor bike on that track in those years.



There is a bit more that I will add to this story in the coming week and I must thank Bernie from Howlong for the old pictures.

Today in Broken Hill we went to the hardware shop, buying what we need to start the in White Cliffs.

Sorry I am late but it has been a big day.

 

 

March 25th Sunday 2018

Left Wentworth at 8:15am this morning with 300km drive to Broken Hill... and we came across something we never seen before. The new Murray River, Wentworth to Broken Hill water pipe line $540,000,000 and they are now working at the 100km section from Wentworth.


Some of it's under ground some on top...

The litter monster that joins the pipe was a 1km away so I found this picture on the Internet.


Most of the pipe is Nylon type Plastic, it is not used all the time it is only used when Broken Hill runs out of water. They will pump the water 300km's from the Murray River to Broken Hill...

Yes we are now in Broken Hill tonight and we plan to be here a week, Carol needs to see a doctor at the Flying Doctor Base in Broken Hill and so do I about Diabetes...

Next Wednesday we plan to go home to White Cliffs for the winter all we need now at home is rain.

That's it for today you all have fun, we will.

 

 

 

March 20th Tuesday 2018

Out last day in Curlwaa Wentworth we went to the Wentworth Museum it cost $4 a head and was worth seeing.


In the area 2,000,000 years ago, I am sure glad I was not here at the time...


Boats on the Murray and on Darling River.


Walked around Australia 110,000,000 years ago..


They talk about bring them back using DNA, forget the DNA just leave them where they are...


Think it is a Ford Model "A" bit before my time.


A general view the wall is a painting of Wentworth.


There is a lot to see trouble is I can remember owning some of them.


What walked the area over the last 100,000,000yr's look at the size of the short nose kangaroo.

It's worth a visit took two hours to see it all today.

Tomorrow we are off to Broken Hill...

Have Fun this week.

 

 

 

March 19th Monday 2018

New week and today we went around the local area here in Wentworth / Curlwaa the coffee shop and the supermarket along with the paper shop.


Sitting on the Darling River, having lunch...


Again the Darling river looking at the Wentworth Bridge. The water you see is backed up from the Murray River just down stream. Up stream there is no water in the Darling it's dry.


The Wentworth Newsagency, Hot Potato cafe we gave that a miss...


Looking South in the main street of town.


Just North outside of Wentworth we have what they call "Perry Sand Hills" that have been there for 1000s of years.


The sand built up when the Murray River was dry some 1000s of years ago, the river changed position 5kms to the South 10,000 years ago it's now a sand hill made of very fine sand.

We are moving onto Broken Hill a day early, Wednesday this week the reason a day early is the wind, we travel South to the North to Broken Hill, on Wednesday the wind will be behind us and we will use 14lt of fuel per 100km's (we have 300km's to travel) Thursday the wind will be from the North a head wind and we would use 22lt's per 100km's with the caravan on. (I know stop thinking Rex your head will blow up)...

Some bad news in Broken "Big W", will close in April the cost of the lease in Broken Hill is to high and it is cheaper to move away. "Not Good"

The plaza will not look good they lost Dick Smith, now Big W.... That's a lot of empty shop...

Hello to Joi in Melbourne, hope you come home from hospital soon.

We are planning a trip to Mildura tomorrow.

 

 

 

March 18th Sunday 2018

After a very windy night at the caravan park about 2am the van got a hard time in 60kph wind we found out this morning that wind had been right across Victoria. I found a broken wire in the television antenna this morning and fix that, television not great here, we only have three television channels.


We went out for lunch today in Mildura on the Murray River...


Coffee shop at the gardens just west of Gol Gol on the New South Wales side of the river. Note the building is built out of canvas and logs cut up.


"Sturt Desert Pea" near the Murray River in the Gol Gol gardens.

I like this picture, I have only every seen red but am told they come out in yellow and blue. Every few years we get them near White Cliffs but they have a black centre.

 

Hear Joi is a little bit better, keep up the good work Joi...

 

The fires are bad in Victoria today...

 

 

 

March 17th Saturday 2018

Built in 1929, Lock 10 plays an important role in the Murray-Darling water system.

The weir and lock were completed in 1929. The purpose of the weir is both to maintain a high level of water for irrigation in times of little and to regulate water flow. The lock enables boats to pass from the upper stream to down stream level of the Murray River and vice versa.

To allow the migration of fish species upstream past the weir at anytime, special ’fishways’ have been built at the abutments of Lock 10. A series of interconnected pools allow the fish to move from pool to pool as part of their upstream travel. This is an important step in the long term recovery of the Murray River ecology.

Lock 10 looking upstream towards Mildura.


Lock 10 also know as the Wentworth Weir.


The boat come's in the water is lowered and the boat goes' out towards South Australia.

We are near where the Darling River runs in the Murray River.


You can see where they cut the Canoe out of the tree.


Canoe Tree and the story it a bit hard to read, the sign had a hard time over the years...


Tomorrow I show you where the Darling River runs into the Murray. If you look on the map you can see the Canoe Tree and Lock 10 on the Murray River tomorrow we are going to see Lock 10 a lock is a small weir.

Friday and the weekend is here...

Tomorrow, Susan move's home to Yarrawonga she got the keys today she now works in Yarrawonga...

Wentworth, NSW

Historic town at the junction of the Murray and Darling rivers.

Wentworth is an interesting historic town on the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers. It is the popular access point for people wanting to explore Lake Mungo and Mungo National Park. It is ideal for visitors wanting to hire a houseboat and travel along the rivers and it has a wealth of interesting historic buildings from the time when it was a vital port for paddle steamers plying the Darling River. It would be easy to stay in Wentworth for three or four days and not exhaust the attractions in the district.

Location

Wentworth is located 1038 km west of Sydney via the Great, Mid Western and Sturt Highways; 572 km north-west of Melbourne; 400 km east of Adelaide;  and it is only 37 m above sea-level although it is nearly 400 km from the river's mouth.

Origin of Name

In 1858 the Murray-Darling crossing known as Hawdon's Ford was officially surveyed. It was named Wentworth the following year after William Charles Wentworth, a prominent politician and an explorer who had been part of the team who were the first Europeans to cross the Blue Mountains.

The Caravan Park, Idyllic 20 acre property on the Murray River with modern amenities, in quiet surroundings. Conveniently located on the intersection of Silver City and Calder Highways, between Mildura and Wentworth. The gate way to cities and towns like Broken Hill 273kms, Adelaide 394kms, Melbourne 565kms. Curlwaa Caravan Park is located next to the Abbotsford Bridge. The only traffic lights in Curlwaa!! Curlwaa is famous for its oranges, arguably the best in Australia. It is located in the Sunraysia district, the fruit bowl of Australia.


Pictures from the Internet the pool at the caravan park.


The caravan park from the road way I take some more pictures tomorrow.

We are only 25km's from Mildura it's about 20min drive to the Mildura. Lot of wild life living out here.

We are having a problem with out television I found the problem this after we have a booster on the TV powered by a 240v to 12v power supply, well it is burned out for some reason it's reading 240v to 0v output so I go buy one tomorrow some place.

We are 7km's from Wentworth and 200m from the Murray River and about 6km's from the place were the Darling River runs in the Murray River.

We are now 552km's from White Cliffs, we will stay here a week then drive to Broken Hill stay a few day then head home just be fore Easter.

Have fun it's mid March already...

 

Hello to Faye and John in Wangaratta

March 10th Saturday 2018

We are still in Kerang Victoria at the caravan park, went into town this morning and all is good. Today is all about the Albury Wodonga Hume Weir my father worked on the Hume Dam in the late 1920s and 1930s.


This picture was on a few weeks ago Carol took the picture as we crossed the Hume Weir

That's when Bernie from Howlong sent us some old pictures for Three Dots. There is a bit more to the story as we crossed the bridge we did not know that Bernie was fishing under the bridge, Bernie seen us we did not see him.


Building the Bethanga Bridge... These are priceless pictures that Bernie sent Three Dots...


Great picture at the time my Father was working in the area.


The building of the Hume Dam great old picture...


This is a hard work, the horse did al the work no big machine here.

From Bernie in Howlong.
Good to hear from you Rex. Here are a few historic photos of Bethanga Bridge and Hume Dam construction. You might like them for your 3dots website. Both were engineering marvels in those days. Hume Weir in the 1930's was the largest dam in the Southern hemisphere, second only to the Hoover Dam in USA. The 9 arched spans of the Bethanga Bridge were fabricated in Melbourne. The spans had small "railway train" wheels underneath and were extended [pushed] one-by-one, starting on the NSW side, across the  railway lines that ran on top of the pylons. Hume Dam was constructed initially as a low wall, hence then called a "weir". I remember the first stage as a 4 year old kid at Bonegilla camp. In 1960, the dam wall was extended to double Lake Humes capacity as it is today. Trust you enjoy the photos.

Thanks Bernie....

 

Carol and I are looking forward to tomorrow Sunday we are going on a boat on the Gannawarra Wetlands Cruise it is a lunch cruise for around 2hr's I hope to take some good pictures for three dots.

At the caravan park tonight we are having a sing song, the park is full for the long weekend, I will be easy to find I be the one out of tune hahaha.

Paid up at the Albury Showgrounds to Thursday morning then we will head North West towards home with the caravan. We are planning to be home by Easter (I think)...

It's hard when you cannot talk about what we are doing.

Have fun....


 

 

March 4th Sunday 2018

Early this morning we decided to move to Albury Wodonga so we packed up in Bethanga and drove to Wodonga Showgrounds, the sign read "We are full" so we went to the Albury Showgrounds and setup camp there.

Then I went out to Kylie Place to help build a new playground they got for Joyce.


I took this picture on the packing box, it may take three days.


Kylie and Susan in building mode today it may take two or three days to build.


They plan to get back to the job tomorrow after work I am told (I did my bit)

Yep tonight we are at the Albury Showgrounds but no trees so it been hot all day. We have television here power and water.. They are rebuilding the toilets and shower block today they will look real good.

Adrian and Dianne are back home from Bendigo they had a popup market in Bendigo yesterday.

Another week camping we have court in Albury this week.

 

 

 

March 3rd Saturday 2018

Went and seen Aub, my oldest brother today, he said I am feeling old he now 88yr's old but not doing so good, last week they said he to old to drive and they took his licence away.


It was hot today so we sat by the Kiewa River it was to dirty to swim in.


This is just outside Wodonga beside the bridge that crosses the Kiewa River on the way to the weir.


That the weir road up the hill we notice a few caravan's free camping here at night there is no power.

We then went back around to Bethanga where we are camped it was a very hot day outside.

They are playing a cricket here on the oval and there are two of us camped here tonight.

Next week maybe a little on and off I have a court case to attend in Broken Hill I am going to give my bit by Video from Albury. A person I know took his own life three years ago we were 1300km's from White Cliffs at the time but he did tell me a few month's before.

Hello to Aub and Beryl in North Albury, thanks for the cup of tea today..

One last item "Woodstock in White Cliffs" is on today.
