    Wallaroo - Copper Coast

    March 11, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Wallaroo was once a bustling mining town, which mined, smeltered and delivered copper and other metals to the world. Today it is a popular holiday town. Situated approx 160 kms from Adelaide, it now has a multimillion dollar marina with family recreation in mind. Boating, paddle boarding, windsurfing, sailing and swimming all popular. There is a pontoon on the foreshore to take the plunge from or simply swim in the shallows from the beach.
    There is a deep sea port and is home to the Spencer Gulf prawn fleet. Grain silo's and ship loading facilities are present.
    Just out of town, we saw a magnificent tree in flower. We believe the tree to be a Sweet Acacia, with it dense large yellow flowers and red nuts it truly was a magnificent site.

    Yorke Peninsula

    May 1, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Stayed 2 nights at Alford on the Yorke Peninsula. Great free camp with toilets, water, dump point, and beautifully maintained by local residents. Unfortunately all commercial enterprise has closed in Alford and many are for sale including the pub and the church.

    Used this as a base to visit towns in the "Copper Triangle" including Kadina, Wallaroo and Moonta. Also checked out the beaut little fishing village of Port Broughton.
