Mildura is in Victoria’s far north east. Quite possibly its most popular caravan park is the delightful Buronga Caravan Park across the Murray River in Buronga, New South Wales. The park has a laidback holiday feel. The paddle steamers toot toot back and forth all day laden with tourists and there are lovely views of the city of Mildura just across the river.
Last winter up on the north coast we have a drink with our neighbours Don and G who are from Mildura and have a shiny new van. They tell us that they checked into nearby Buronga caravan park so that their dealer could do a post sale run through of all the features. Afterwards a passing camper admired the van and asked how long they’d had it. “Five hours” said Don happily. And when asked where he was from Don replied “Oh, interstate.” At least he didn’t ask how far Don had driven.
