The meandering Murrumbidgee
On our trip through New South Wales last week we stayed one night in a cabin in the Balranald Caravan Park. The town of Balranald (population about 1200) is situated on the banks of the meandering Murrumbidgee River, one of the major rivers that flow into the Murray River.
The caravan park is at the south eastern edge of town and the bank of the river forms one boundary of the park. The photo above shows a part of the river next to the park. The photo below was taken in the middle of the park. It shows the lift section of the historic old bridge that once spanned the river here. One section of the bridge had to be lifted to allow the old river boats to pass under it. A new higher bridge has recently been built.
