Pete and Shelby commented that it would be hard to drag ourselves away to taste the local wines, NOT.  Well imagine how hard it was to drag ourselves away from our camp on the Murray to head for home.  We had had a great time at Corowa enjoying excellent food and wine on the banks […]

First point of interest was the Macintyre Falls, where we […]
