Long enough? Absolutely!
Your landing strip awaits you.
Ian lands his Twin Comanche with plenty of room to spare
Jeff Wittig bounds off his Comanche 250 on arrival. We'd only ever spoken on the phone, never met! I love that flying can bring people together like that.
Take a rest, little planes. See you in a few days ...
Welcome to Bindara
Last week, under water. This week, squishy, but driveable.
After the flood, the country is looking green and lush.
The magnificent historic Bindara homestead.
The homestead is currently being painstakingly renovated.
Go for a walk and start shedding that city stress!
The Darling, now back to around 4.5m depth. Peak of the flood, she was at 9m.
Exclusive riverside seating, all hand made upholstery.
In the flood, the river peaked at the black tyre. Phew ....
Eating, drinking and hanging-out headquarters. Posh, hey?
New friendships forged through flying. (L to r) Ian & Irene (Tyabb), Jeff & Deanna (near Wangaratta), me and Rossy.
Vital boys business obviously
Dress circle seating
The Boundary Riders Cottage can take 6 comfortably.
Showing off her pretty side in between droughts - the iconic Darling River rises and falls with the vagaries of Australian rainfall.
Cruiseship views ...
One of the super comfortable rooms in the Jillaroos Cottage.
Who's hungry? Breakfast of champions over the campfire.
Learning to drive Barb's campfire toaster ... Step One, don't drop the bread into the fire.
I'm in two minds - botox or a burqa?
Make sure you get on the receiving end of some of Barb's wealth of information about the history of Bindara.
Righto - sleeves rolled up and let's get stuck into em.
Part of Bindara's huge collection of toys, tools & machinery. The boys were quite beside themselves in Bill's tool shed.
Citrus is one of Barb's amazing success stories out here.
Just add G&T
Historical cemetery on the property.
Where the river has been ...
The old shearing shed you can walk to from the campsite.
Old wool press
Old sheep dip
I'm sure Willy has a better angle but I couldn't find it.
Until today, my career as a camel-feeder had been patchy. Then I got the hang.
Snowy seems happy with the catering.
This little bloke thinks he's a camel - he follows Snowy & Willy around like a shadow.
Not sure the fine Merino buyers need to look here.
Looking very settled, isn't she? Bindara guest, Irene, may not be going home in the Twin Comanche tomorrow.
