    Taking the long way...

    December 31, 2017 in Australia

    Het Eyre schiereiland probeer ik via de westkust weer te verlaten, maart is allemaal zo boeiend en afwisselend, dat ik de tijd neem voor elk baaitje en zijweggetje. Een van de hoogtepunten is Pildappa rock ( een soort mini Uluru) en de Gawler range bergen. Port Augustus gebruikt voor de inkopen, de stad zelf is het niet echt, en door naar een mangrovegebied+~ 20 km daaronder. De parkranger/ onderzoeker vertelt honderduit over de klimaatverandering en wat dat voor t park betekent...
    Niet al zijn beweringen blijken te kloppen als ik samen met nieuw Zeelanders deze factcheck... maar gezellig is ie wel .....

    Day 33

    February 23, 2017 in Australia

    Big day today drove to Port Pirie via Port Broughton. Not much in between its a wheat farming area so it is pretty baron. Port Pirie also has a lead smelter that I am going to look at tomorrow, a sign I read said it's the largest in the world. I also narrowly missed being run over by a large train I went to give way but decided i better stop like the sign said, lucky as i did not see the train coming it would have been perfect timing. Found a little inlet amd caught a few little striped grunter but very quickly ran out of bait.Read more

    Merriton to Pimba

    April 25, 2017 in Australia

    Well we spent the night at Merriton, and farewelled Trev bright and early to head off on our journey. I had to take a shot of my Pa's old workbench - fond childhood memories there, good to see it's being used (!!).
    After enduring a decidedly soggy drive we arrived at Spud's Roadhouse for the night. This is a traditional stopover for those coming or going north. A huge fe free camp space is available for campers with an added bonus of toilets and showers. We spent the afternoon organising the stuff that had been "thrown in" the van when we left home. Then, a short stroll to Spuds for a counter meal and beer. Nice. Today we are hoping to get to Coober Pedy, the weather is much better so fingers crossed.Read more

    Port Pirie

    June 27, 2017 in Australia

    We stayed at a nice park near the beach. There was not much for kids to do but it has the beach, a playground and a skate park nearby. We loved riding our bikes here and watching the dolphins in the bay.
    There are lots of fish at the beach to catch... and a big crab that got away!

    Port Pirie surprised

    January 5, 2016 in Australia

    Stopped over in Port Pirie. We went for a walk to look at the clasic train station. The place had some great historical buildings. We stayed near the beach and went for a few swims even sfter we saw the number of swimmer crabs. On the way out we saw a few cross Australia trains.
