Beautiful Berri

We spent 4 days around Berri a lovely area to visit with some very nice and well priced campgrounds to stay at.

We spent our first couple of nights at the Martins Bend campground. It's a beautiful bush setting on the river, plenty of space for camping and to sit by the river with a fishing rod. There is a toilet block and dump point onsite but you need to bring your own water. There is a caretaker onsite but he doesn't take payments for camping, you need to log into the Council website and the cost is only $5 per night. It takes about 5 minutes to drive into town for any supplies needed so this was an awesome spot to stay.

From there we drove 15 minutes to the little town of Barmera to camp right on the banks of Lake Bonney. Again you need to pay your camping fees of $5 per night on the Council website but for that you can camp right on the banks of the Lake for some fishing or paddling. There are no facilities onsite so you need to be fully self contained. We would like to point out that the Bakery in town does a pretty good pie.

We had plenty to do in the area, the never ending Geocache run we are on meant we explored some spots we might have otherwise missed. The view from the Water Tower in Berri is worth a look and there is plenty of local history to discover. At Lake Bonney we took a good look around the area, checked out Nappers Ruins/Lake Bonney Hotel on the north side of the lake and explored about the Loch Luna reserve. Of course when you've done all the exploring there are a number of local wineries for those who are so inclined.
