 Mildura & le desert: Mungo Parc Nationale, jour 3

Tuesday 20th:

Nous avons du se leve tot a 8h et Paul collected us to take a short trip back out to Wentworth to see the Inland Botanical Gardens (mostly outback native bush botanic gardens, but did have a large rose section as well)

After taking Paul to work at 9.30, we continued on to the well known Mildura attraction “Woodsie’s gem shop” which displays gem stones from all around Australia and the world in mineral and jewellery form. We could watch a free cutting and polishing demonstration and explore the ‘gem cave’ (a fake cave with ‘tunnels’ made of plaster to display uncut stones….the best room of which was one with ultraviolet light which made all the gemstones glow as if from inside….quite interesting.

I couldn’t resist buying a couple of small gemstone jewellery items for presents for friends and family, before it was time to go back to Mildura, where we again met Paul for lunch.

At 3 pm, we collected Paul from work and departed for Mungo National Park in NSW, 100 kms nord est de Mildura. We were pleased that this journey on unsealed gravel road only took 1 1/2 h cette fois (la route etait en meilleure condition qu\'avant)

By 4.30 pm, we were at the main camping area of Mungo, and ready to set up our tents for the evening.

When sunset approached, we got back in the 4x4 and headed out to see the Great Wall of China lunettes, formations of silt, mud and sand which are particulierement fascinant au couchee et leve de soleil.

The sight was quite spectacular and there weren\'t more than 10 other cars at the parking area.

Back at the camp, after a diner cooked on the gas camping cooker, we lit a camp fire with wood we\'d brought with us from home (not easy to collect firewood in the desert!) and toasted marshmallows while sitting around the fire talking.
