    Eyre schiereiland

    December 24, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Goed, de Outback even achtergelaten, en DE noord- zuid snelweg, de Stuart Highway af, naar beneden. T is naar verhouding een drukke weg, erg smal voor de grote roadtrains.
    Al eerder langs zoutmeren gekomen, maar hier ligt er een direct aan de weg, Lake Hart, en Ted, een Science teacher die hier vaak komt vertelt: soms vragen mensen of je hier kunt zwemmen !
    Op t schiereiland de oostkust aangehouden, met in elk stadje een grote graansilo, een Jetty( steiger) strandje en bbqplaats. De plaatsen hebben ook vaak Port of Bay in hun naam.

    T3 - Eyre Peninsula

    October 17, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    ▪️Bei Port Gippon sind wir am Strand entlang marschiert, da Liza bei Wiki Camps gelesen hat, dass hier Seelöwen faulenzen
    ▪️Und ja! Ich hab mich so erschrocken, als sich ein einzelner Seelöwe zwischen den Sanddünen streckte - so süß, fett und flauschig :D
    ▪️Henry hat sich in den Sanddünen fest gefahren, es stank nach Gummi und die Fliegen nervten - Jasper hat ihn mit seinem 4WD und einem Abschleppseil rausgezogen
    ▪️Zum Abendbrot aßen wir selbstgemachte vegetarische Burger unter sternklaren Himmel auf einer Rest Area :)

    February 25 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Im not going to lie.... i dont like anything about Cowell..... the sea stinks as it is covered right up to the shoreline.. stinky sludgy yukky seaweed... the silo art is a bit meahhhh its old and yukki. Our campsite leaves a little to the imagination.. rural !!!
    Sure is. Its dusty and everywhere you look are caravans that have been turned into homes... the poor vans come here to die !!!!!!!

    May 21, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    As we left Lochiel we got another look at the Nessie sunning herself on the beach and she did look splendid.
    We had a good drive ahead of us as we were aiming to pass Port Perie pass Port Augusta as well as Whyalla heading for Cowell, we were moving along ok until we came up behind a wide load (no not Kim Kardashian’s rear-end but nearly as wide) it was a bulldozer on a flatbed 5.5mts wide well it took about 30 kms before we had our turn to get passed it, well the relief was short lived as 40 kms up the road it was a real performance to pass its twin.
    When we got to Cowell, Kay decided that the 2 caravan parks here are not close enough to the beach 🏖 (Kay wants to stay somewhere close to the sea to relax for a week) so we moved to the Lions club rest area for the night and will move on tomorrow to Arno Bay which is about 50kms further down the road.

    Cape Le Grand Nationalpark

    February 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 38 °C

    Das war mein absolutes Highlight bis jetzt 😍
    Die Strände sind wie in der Karibik, der Sand ist total fein, das Wasser absolut klar und überall laufen Kängurus rum 😍

    From Coober Pedy to the Eyre peninsula

    September 20, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    Left Coober Pedy for Port Augusta and a top up of stores and time to do the washing. It’s not too far , but we don’t do far anymore so we had a free camp along the way. Did our bits and pieces in Augusta and headed down the Eyre peninsular to enjoy the seaside again and hopefully some fish and some squid, as this peninsula is renowned for squid , snapper and king prawns. Had our first night on the peninsula at Fitzgerald bay , a lovely bay but too hard to get to the beach, so left the next day for Whyalla.
    Just passed through Whyalla, had a quick look around, and onto Cowell. A beautiful little seaside town with a gorgeous pub which has a spit pig every Wednesday night, and guess what tomorrow is, hate it when that happens!!!
    Had some lovely walks around Cowell and out onto their long jetty, followed by a nice spit meal at the pub ( albeit a little late coming ).

    A night in Cowell

    March 18, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Just a quick stop over here!
    Needed to stay at a park as fryzie happened to drop the thetford cassette 😂
    For us everything happens on a long weekend or even a weekend when everything is shut 😳

    Cowell is a great place to visit and catch yourself some crabs!!! As easy as dropping some nets over the jetty and pulling them up every 10-15 mins
    Awsome!!! Great for kids too.
