Oct 29, 2013 - SA/VIC border

(Ben) A couple of hours down at the actual harbour seemed appropriate before we departed Victor Harbor today. Under fairly cloudy skies we walked the 600 m causeway across to Granite Island and checked out the views from up on some of the granite outcrops. We also visited the penguin rehab centre (celebrity penguins mainly...) on the island and were there for feeding time. The creatures in question are the little fairy penguins (Australia's only kind, I think?) and we got plenty of amusement out of their antics. A lot of the little things...

People come there to walk their dogs and exercise. We had lovely walks round the lake and eventually prised ourselves away to journey on.

Instead we went to Reeds lookout and Broka Lookout for more views over the valley. We then went to look at some aboriginal art and then to Hollow Mountain where we did part of the walk we were meant to do and saw some more aboriginal art. Our guide explained to us that the artwork in this part of Australia was primitive compared with artwork further north and it really was primitive - stick men and hand...
