Mannum located on the Murray River in South Australia is about an hours drive from our home so an ideal place to try out our new tent. With weather that was just perfect, packed the car and of we went. We called up the Mannum Caravan Park and they gave us quite a nice spot right by the river.
Here are some of the pictures taken from this trip. You can click on the photo and it will open to a full size image.
