Wentworth NSW and Blanchetown SA

overcast 23 °C

At Wentworth we looked at the "Junction of of two rivers" and the Wentworth Gaol. Seeing a "Lock" was a first for us too.

The junction was interesting because of the two currents and different water colour.

The gaol was interesting in that some of the original restraints are still there.

Blanchetown is just a small town which from what I can gather is there to service/maintain/operate the lock.

Late this afternoon there was much excitement in the park because a magnificent old riverboat Princess Murray) was approaching the Blanchetown Lock from down river. This kept everyone entertained for about 40 minutes while it went through the process. It was very interesting.
