The Riverina has copped a soaking over the last several weeks and there’s plenty more on the way, but that hasn’t stopped thousands from packing the ute and hitting the road for the Deni Ute Muster.
The muster officially opened on Friday morning and the 2016 star attraction Keith Urban is certain to bring in a bumper crowd for the 18th annual muster.
The line-up for early camping areas snaked its way for several kilometres right through the Deniliquin township on Thursday as keen muster-goers turned up for the weekend.
It’s be the first wet Deni Ute Muster in several years, and ute paddock campers are living it up in the mud.
Even if the sun emerges, the Bureau of Meteorology is predicting a top temperature 15 degrees on Saturday.
