|I'm in South Australia now, my third australian state. We have been good tourists, discarding all the fruit we couldn't eat after crossing the border (you are not allowed to take fruit or vegetables to South Australia because of the danger of bringing fruit flies) and set our watches to central standard time, which means that i'm 9 1/2 hours before Germany now - don't ask me why they're doing half hour time shifts.
After the grampians we took a little detour over the Little Desert National Park (which is by no means a desert, apart from the fact that the ground is sandy) and decided toreturn to the coast, as the roads inland were running straight for miles, through not very exciting scenery. We stopped at a campsite near Edenhope, which was totally desertet - obviously out of season, or out of business, or everyone kidnapped by aliens? The only living things were a huntsman in the sink and a flock of about 200 cockatoos. At least the showers and toilets were open and working, so we decided a free night would be nice. I have to admit it was a bit scary, I feared to find a skeleton in one of the showers or something like that, but in the end everything was nice and quiet.
The next morning (after no one showed up to charge us for using the campsite) we kept going towards the coast and followed the Princes Highway in the direction of Adelaide. We visited Coorong Nationalpark, a system of dunes, fresh and saltwater lakes and a beautiful deserted beach.
At the moment we are in Victor Harbour, a little touristy town on the Fleurieu Peninsula south of adelaide and just booked the (bloody expensive) ferry to kangaroo island for tomorrow. Over there we'll spend three days of wildlife watching and leisure after all the driveng we did in the last days.
