    Whyalla

    February 26, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Whyalla ist die drittgrösste Stadt in South Australia, mit vielen Industrie- und Hafenanlagen aber auch einem sehr schönen Strand. An dem kleinen Hafen neben dem Strand konnten wir viele Delfine sehen. Sie kamen mit den einfahrenden Booten und hofften auf ein bisschen Fisch. Am Strand kann man bei Ebbe etwa 800m auf dem Sand laufen und bei Flut soweit ins Wasser gehen, bei ca. 1m Wassertiefe. Das war bei gutem Wind natürlich ein Paradies für Kitesurfer, also konnte Viktor endlich wieder seinen Kite auspacken. Glücklicherweise haben wir hier auch wieder nette Leute kennengelernt, die uns einige Tipps geben konnten...

    Whyalla ist the third biggest city in South Australia, with much industry- and harbour facilities but also with a lovely beach. At the small harbour beside the beach we could see some dolphins. They came with the incoming boats and hoped for a bit fish. At the beach at low tide you can walk about 800m far at the sand and at high tide you can walk into the water so far, at 1m water depth. This was a paradise for kite surfer, so Viktor could unpack his kite at last. Fortunately we met again some nice people, which could give us some tips...

    An extended IKEA test

    June 30, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    A few hours of digging and pushing and putting rocks under the tires (and having orange, muddy sand all over) got the car back on the road. All done in a good mood, after a good brekkie.
    We left the city as soon as possible and went south to an empty, mud free spot by the water, having the sound of the waves setting the mood for a slow afternoon.Read more

    Whyalla

    March 12, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Whyalla is located on the western shore of the upper Spencer Gulf on the Eyre Peninsula and is 385 kms northwest of Adelaide. The town has a substantial industrial base providing mining, engineering and steel services.
    We spent an extremely windy afternoon which lasted into the evening staying into the next day. The gale which was blowing certainly made it difficult to sleep as our van was on a site directly off the foreshore. We did manage some sightseeing without being blown off the face of the earth.
    Matthew Flinders first navigated the north Spencer Gulf in 1802, followed by Frenchman Louis-Claude Freycinet in 1803, these famous explorers are remembered in contemporary sculptures of the pair.
    The foreshore has recreational areas and is linked to the Ada Ryan gardens for everyone to enjoy. Along the foreshore is a sculpture of a stainless steel globe of the world honouring the multicultural heritage of the town and also a diver , an acknowledgement of humans and nature interacting . Little Mawson was up close and personal with the diver. In town is a steel artwork honouring the Henry Lawson story of the Loaded Dog. Made of thousands of pieces of small steel rods it makes a wonderful exhibit.
    One little structure we saw looked nothing other than a high rise Hobit house, looking rather funny we thought.

    Here for 3 days, getting car serviced. The steel refinery tour starts next week so we won't get that done.

    We went to a private Elvis Presley museum ,Peter is so passionate about his collection. We spent hours there.

    Drove to point Lowrey lighthouse and then the beach track along cuttlefish bay where the giants gather to spawn in May.

    Finally Kel went Blue swimmers crab 🦀 hunting on the sand flats directly in front of our caravan foreshore site.

    Of course a hit of golf, better play today.

    Just an overnight stop as we head towards Renmark and all points East. Founded by BHP as a port to ship iron ore from the Iron Knob Mine it's the 3rd most populous town in SA.

    After checking out Hummock's Hill and the foreshore, we ended up having a drink with the managers of the CP who then gave us some King George Whiting fish fillets to take with us...looking forward to trying that in the next couple of days!

    A lot warmer 12-29
