“Mildura is about 5 hours drive from Adelaide on the Victoria/New South Wales border. The Murray River provides the border between the two states. Grapes and oranges abound …. Acre upon acre …. Two hundred miles in any direction and not a sign of a hill! I’ve been in a houseboat on the river, to the Perry Sandhills, to the local billabong (lake, not pub … Although the local brewery does a lovely IPA), and to a variety of salt flats/swamps. People seem quite cagey about questions of industrial/agricultural water use…”
