    Wompinni Station

    Last easter i visted my mates old station on the Murray's edge called Wompinnia Station.

    An old farmhouse right on the Murray River about 2 hours out of Wentworth on a harsh dirt road, inaccessible in the wet.

    Best easter trip ever. Although the fish wern't biting we had a great time trying to fish (more drinking really) hunting and just kicking back enjoying the land with no one around for miles.

    I must admit Easter time is the best time for travelling up north for anyone living in Melbourne.

    Here's a couple of pics but ill have to hunt around and find some better ones of the farmhouse and the river. it's amazing how big the Murray is actually. I haven't been up here in a while!

    Anyway, attached is a pic of me on top of the mrs patrol wagon, she wasn't too happy when she saw this pic and one of my baby going for a cruise in my gu Patrol ute, as you can see she looks really excited about the 9 hour drive ahead...haha

    I know Wentworth area quite well actually. Wheres the station, east or west of Wentworth?

    By the look at that photo looks pretty far west heading into the desert i assume?

    The environment changes heaps after Wentworth, you can start to see the red sand, etc.

    P.S - Its a great area to forget life for a week or so i agree!

    Yeah your right, It's 2 hours on a long long long dirt road heading pretty much to SA - Renmark area. I was only there for a week and a bit but could've stayed for a lifetime.
    Just need a rod, petrol for the tinny, endless beer and I'm set for life!!!

    They should be letting the dams go soon around there so the fishing will be A++++ soon. Also, theres a lot of alge trapped in the Murray at the moment so it really needs a flush out!

    Bring on the fish!
