May 27, 2017 - 27th May, 2017. Nhill to Bordertown to Tailem Bend

27/5/2017. Nhill to Tailem Bend Although the caravan park was off the highway, not far enough away to dull the traffic noises during the night. It was sunny but windy when we woke, but by the time we stopped at Bordertown to get a few scripts filled, it was quite cold. We saw a statue of Bob Hawke, who was born here in 1929, but didn't linger as this town is much smaller than we thought - I rely on the size of the printing in the map book, but it let me down today. We went through a short shower, and as we continued to Tintinara for our...

Apr 22, 2016 - Day 6

Day 6 Took the road down to Clare This is their wheat belt area and I think that they have dry seeded as the paddocks had no grass and looked like that they had been ploughed. This whole area is very dry. At Clare this area is grape and wine area and the autumn colours of the trees was great, haven't seen so many shades of green, yellow and reds, no photo's as the good shots were on a no stop bend or we had gone past before I could say stop. Drove through Gawler this is a busy town, the traffic was horrendous. Had problems getting up to...

Sep 21, 2013 - Tailem Bend

Travelling South we notice that the weather is cooling. We stopped in at Port Wakefield to visit friends then headed through Adelaide as we have decided to take the motorhome to Melbourne instead of flying. You might ask why we are going back to Melbourne. We are going back to help our son and to get a few essential things done. Also to have the truck42 serviced and to see friends and family. They're all good reasons to be going and we'll also have our own place to stay whilst there. The countryside is lovely and green with rolling hills...

Nov 21, 2012 - Trains, ferries and a magical spot

Today we travelled back to Victor Harbor on the Cockle Bay rail car. It left the station at the Goolwa harbor and travelled through the small towns of Middleton and Port Elliot and continued its journey along the coast to Victor Harbor. Keagan really enjoyed the views out the windows. There were only 6 of us on the trip over but about 25 on the way back and the views were lovely. When we got back to Goolwa we headed off up the Murray. We followed the secondary roads to the small and pretty town of Milang on the banks of the huge Lake...

Nov 1, 2010 - Wellington

1st November Wellington, near Tailem Bend Drove around the city again in the morning, feel like we have a good feel for the place after hours on it's streets. Went to an information centre which didn't tell us of anything interesting happening so we headed out to Victoria harbour incase we could catch the end of the whale season. We couldn't. Apparently there have been none passing for the last three weeks. Dissapoiting. However we did walk over a passway to granite island and saw seals! They were just lying on their backs inthe water...
