Lameroo is a small service town in the mallee districts of eastern South Australia. The town provides goods and services for the surrounding wheat and sheep farming area.
The town is also on the quickest route from Adelaide to Sydney, so we usually go that way when going to visit family. On our most recent trip we stopped here for morning tea on the first day of our holiday. The picnic ground is a grassed area next to the artificial Lake Roberts. Barbecues are provided in the shelter shed (see photo below).
There is also a small council run caravan park (see photo above). This is a relatively new addition to the facilities in Lameroo. As you can see, there was no-one staying in the park when we were there.
We are off on another road trip – this time to Sydney for Christmas. The photo above was taken on our trip last year; this year we are driving our daughter’s car, but we didn’t stop to take a photo of the Hay Plains this trip.
We left on the Monday before Christmas so this article has taken a few days to appear. Over the coming few weeks I will be adding many more articles about what we did and what we saw. I will also be adding heaps of photos.
On the first day we left home in Murray Bridge soon after breakfast. We stopped at Underbool in Victoria for a very hot lunch. We had been travelling just ahead of a cool change sweeping across the countryside. We had afternoon tea at Piangil on the banks of the River Murray. Soon after we crossed the river at Tooleybuc and into New South Wales. We bypassed Balranald and travelled on across the Hay Plains shown in the photo above.
Because of the heat the birding was poor all day. I saw very few birds as we travelled along.
