Along the Edward river in rural NSW lies the town of Deniliquin. Perhaps you are familiar with the infamous ‘ute muster,’ a festival celebrating- you guessed it, the mighty Australian ute. (Dear reader not from Australia, please feel free to click here for further clarification.)
But on a calmer note and one that the local people actually enjoy are the beautiful days spent relaxing on the river.
This town is where my mothers side of the family is from and I have spent many a day floating down the river on an inflated mattress with my cousins.
This particular visit was owing to my grandfathers 70th birthday, where we rented a beautiful old heritage listed house and then afterwards got drunk on my cousins houseboat, which was later infiltrated by the population of Deniliquin high schools 2014 graduates.
On the way out of Sydney we stopped in the beautiful small town of Berrima, which we enjoyed for its bakeries, jam and pie shops- we later found that most people know it for the women’s correctional institute at the centre of townwe seemed to have missed the first time round… Australia full of surprises around every corner and river bend!
