Great Places To Visit - Relaxing Weekend away - Tocumwal, N.S.W., on the Murray River.

We spent a lovely weekend (again) at our holiday cottage in Tocumwal.  The Murray River was beautiful in the warm Autumn sunshine, and the nights were lovely and cool for snuggling under the doona. No wonder we brought a house here for breaks out of "the big smoke".  So peaceful, tranquil, and scenic.  I never get tired of walking along the banks of the beautiful Murray River.  The giant Murray River Red Gums have always captured my heart, especially when the colours on the trunks are so vibrant as they are in autumn.  The local bakery is always one of our first stops for beautiful home style breads, pies, and cakes/desserts/slices.  The diet goes out the window up here!  One of the 4 local pubs in town is literally around the corner and down the street from us, so we walk down of an evening and have dinner there. Great food, generous servings, true country hospitality.  Arrrggghhhh..........feel the serenity!

"Big Murray". The fibreglass Murray Cod lives on the foreshore.
