Diverse cross-section of Wagga Wagga RV Crows tie GSA up in ukulele cords

Grey Nomads rolled up in force for the second Easter Stone the Crows Festival in Wagga Wagga NSW. The Recreational Vehicle (RV) mix is the thing which sets the festival apart.

Caravans, motorhomes, campervans, 5th wheelers, tents and campers which included an Owl.

Don't panic your correspondent had not heard of an Owl either until the camper and its 82 year old owner presented themselves at the festival. Turned out to be a Jayco camper which pre-dates the popular Jayco  Dove. Ideal for an independent person travelling alone and using a much loved Mitsubishi Magna as the tow vehicle.

GSA is not certain how much the Owl weighs but an educated guess says about 840kg loaded.

Imaginative names come with the big cross-section of RV's. So we have include a selection for the entertainment of GoSeers.

The Stone the Crows event is also pet friendly and polite protocols are observed. As reported earlier there was a fluttered when the venue changed to the ACTA grounds this year, but in perfect weather any flat campsite was home.

Mike Jacksons Ukulele sessions were a popular part of the festival and led to GSA's Lisa and Nick becoming disciples.

The ukulele or sometimes uke, is a member of the guitar family; it generally employs four nylon or gut strings or four courses of strings. The tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction.

Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone. Driving to Benalla after the festival your correspondent enjoyed being caught up in learning uke cords.

Wagga Wagga has an authorised 72 hour stopover site on the northern side of the city which has a dump point.

Shopping in Wagga Wagga is city standard with good prices, wide street and plenty of parking.

The Wagga Wagga Visitor Information Centre local call is 1300 100 122. or

Wagga Wagga is well placed to explore the Riverina. To the east is Mount Kosciusko in the Snowy Mountains. To the west is Griffith, the heart of New South Wales’ biggest wine producing region. An easy drive away are Junee, Lockhart and Temora.
