Deniliquin — It’s about six and a half hours drive from Canberra

December 2nd, 2008 at 03:20am

There’s a headline which proves that I should not be the director of tourism and marketing for the Deniliquin Council!

I was going to wait until about 9am to post this, but seeing as I just told John Kerr and half the country about it…I’ll be spending the week in Deniliquin, starting at some stage, probably around midday on Sunday the 14th of December, (unless I decide to leave Canberra on the Saturday instead…assuming that the hotel have a vacancy for another night) and working at 2QN and Classic Rock FM filling in for newsreader Graham Munson from Monday to Friday.

Google Maps thinks it will take between 6.5 and 7 hours to drive there, depending on whether I go through Albury or Narrandera, although it does tend to overestimate the travel time for such trips. That said, with a couple stops along the way, it could be very accurate.

It should be a good week, and I’m certainly looking forward to it. The only downside that I can see to this is that I will have to miss out on a Christmas party on that Sunday, and I won’t be in town to panel the final Open House show of the year on 1WAY FM. I won’t have to miss the show entirely though as Vision, another station who take the show, have a repeater in Deniliquin. I suppose that blogging could be problematic during that week depending on what Internet access I have…suddenly I’m pleased that my laptop has a standard modem built-in, and Internode offer ten hours of complimentary dialup access per month with their ADSL plans. Such access would feel like I was waiting for somebody to send me a copy of the Internet on floppy disks via Australia Post, but it would be better than nothing.

Anyway, as I said, it should be a good week. I’m excited about it.

    Congrats, Sambo! That is awesome news (pun intended).

    As they’re live streaming isn’t online yet, I trust you will provide us with some samples?

    Well done, bravo, onya champ, bonza mate etc etc

    Sam, if Google maps is telling you to go trough Narrandera, than I suggest you look at instead!

    My advice: go through Wagga (on the Narrandera Rd) for about 20ks to a place called Collingullie. Turn left onto the Urana Lockhart Rd. Go through Lockhart and Urana until you come to the Newell Hwy where you turn left and go through Jerilderie. Go straight through Jerilderie on the Conargo Rd. From Jerilderie via this rd it is 85ks to D/Quin. Going through Narrandera will add at least 170ks to your trip!

    Thanks Davky, yes I will be providing samples at some stage after I get back.

    Padders, that is wise advice, although I think I’ll probably end up going through Albury…it will be a longer journey, but a stop in Gundagai and another stop in Albury sounds like a good plan to me.
