Well yesterday we arrived in Broken Hill.  We had travelled to Bourke and stayed in the Kidman Camp Caravan Park.

It is very close to the Darling River.  A paddle boat travels down the river and is a one hour trip down to the old bridge that crosses the Darling between Bourke and the caravan Park.

At the information center they also have an outback show where a demonstration of horsemanship and training of kelpie’s  occur.  He does a demonstration of sheep trialing.

He has a couple of puppies that are in training.  Interesting that he does not keep any dogs that continuously bark. This dog is going over to his mother.

When we arrived in Cobar the Nissan was not running very well.  My advice to people is not to break down in Cobar unless you have a couple of weeks to spare.  After having the fuel tank drained !! and new fuel filter fitted it ran no better.  Thankfully we have RAA Premium Plus cover and rode in a tow truck to Broken Hill dodging kangaroo’s, pigs, goats and emus.  This is our new home for a few days, at least until Tuesday when we go to a recommended mechanic.
