While you are in Berri and taking advantage of the free overnight camp site or daytime picnic areas visit the co-op and purchase dried fruit from the growers and local wines and citrus fruit. Fill the car with fuel and but the groceries. These well maintained overnight cam sites and picnic areas are a privileged and if everyone leaves them clean and says thank you though purchases when we travel though we will always be welcomed back.
And above is my toast to some of the wonderful people of Berri. Thank you for welcoming the gray-nomad travelers to your Murray Riverside land.
My own personal thank you too for the wonderful work of the bush trackers of this country who had found many lost people.
A Special Place for Jimmy James Jimmy James (the second) was a famous blacktracker, who was born around 1910 and belonged to the Pitjantjatjara people. He moved to the Riverland in the 1940's and took his name from his equally famous father-in law. He became a legend in his own lifetime when he was used extensively by the Police forces in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and the Northern Territory, to track felons, escapees and missing people. He died several years ago, and is buried at Gerard, the Aboriginal settlement near Winkie. The monument is sculptured out of two large slabs of black granite which are finely polished and engraved with images of birds and animals - a part of Jimmy's spirit world.
