    Port Augusta South Australia

    July 24, 2016 in Australia ⋅ 🌬 11 °C

    Overnighting at The Standpipe Golf Motor Inn, we enjoyed a well earned rest after a long days driving.
    Port Augusta was named after the wife of the first Governor of South Australia. It sits on the Spencer Gulf and was a traditional meeting place for Aboriginal peoples. More recently, Port Augusta has prospered as an outback shipping port.
    The weather was cold, overcast and drizzling however we headed to the Australian Arid Lands Botanic Gardens for brunch. Such a gorgeous area with all manner of natives.
    Before leaving Port Augusta we spent some time in Wadlata Outback Centre, both informative and interactive. Off to Adelaide now to get the FJ serviced, call in on some friends and repack and reorganise for the next leg of our travel.
