Have you noticed that I have been referring to this trip as the River Run? That's because we are going into the area of Australia's great inland rivers.
Well this isn't a river but is an irrigation channel fed from the Murrumbidgee River. We are entering country where channels like this criss-cross the land. Australia's water systems are in trouble because of the extended drought so I am sure there is going to be some discussion on water usage over the next few days ... like why is the water in ditches where apparently up to 80% of the water volume is lost through evaporation and water seepage?
But first let's see what a difference a little water can make. I will show you that tomorrow.
