    Corny Point

    December 13, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Heute sind wir weiter zum „Corny Point“ gefahren, zu einem sehr ruhigem, aber sehr schönen Campingplatz. Auf Empfehlung der Besitzerin haben wir uns die Küste hier angeschaut.
    Es war ein atemberaubender Ausblick und weit und breit war keine Menschenseele 😍, sondern man hörte nur das Rauschen des Meeres und die Geräusche der Delfine 🐬 😊
    Auf dem Rückweg zum Campingplatz begegnete uns mal wieder eine Tannenzapfenechse😂😂

    Roadtrip mit Harry - Innes Nationalpark

    „Women love cars too, but in a very different way. They love their cars for ever doing what they want, for starting and stopping more or less when and where they should, for being helpful, protecting and sharing the load.“Read more

    Wot's in a Name !

    March 11, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

    Whilst visiting the York Peninsula we found these special names :
    Port Julia a special reference to our second daughter. Wool Bay made us think of our farming days and our bond to the wool industry. It's name refers to the location where wool was loaded onto boats after being rolled through a gap in the cliffs that was wide enough to roll a bale through down onto the beach.
    Gym beach: the ultimate workout destination.
    Tiddy Widdy Beach : thought it sounded a little bit Benny Hill.
    Pine Point : The name of our farm in NSW.
    Ryan's shaft : we'll let you make up your own mind. ( Ange was a Ryan )

    Yorke Peninsular Northern End

    March 11, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Two things there are plenty of on the York Peninsula are large cropped paddocks and anglers !
    The towns are mostly small, sleepy even a little tired looking, most boasting some beautiful old limestone buildings, usually pubs !
    The town of Minlaton, today known as the ' Barley Capital of the World ' was an exception. The town was bright and tidy, colourful flower beds, trees, picnic areas and a playground all added to the picture.
    The town of Edithburg, more southern end of the peninsula, was home to a tidal swimming pool, great concept but certainly no competition to the tidal pool at Manly.
    Another feature was the Wattle Point wind farm, in fact wind farms are prevalent all over South Australia.
    Mining once dominated the area. One famous town was Moonta. Patrick Ryan, a shepherd, discovered copper in the mouth of a wombat burrow in This discovery lead to the formation of the Moonta Mining Company. The area is maintained by the National Trust, the train line and tunnel leading to Ryan's waste dump still present.

    Stansbury SA

    September 26, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Drove to Innes NP (incorporating the site on old Innestown) taking in Edithburgh, Yorketown, Marion Bay and on the way home went via Corny Point. Took coffee with us and thought that we would get a salad roll somewhere. No, not on. Most places were closed on a Sunday afternoon but we stumbled across a cafe in Marion Bay that sold homemade pies. Stephen had a Seafood pie and I had a Sweet Chilli Chicken Pie. Both were deep and full of goodness and flavor. Innestown was the town which mined Gypsum and shipped it directly onto ships via jetty (see photos) up until 1958. Historic township of Innestown still shows remains of buildings in the town, some of which have been restored. These can be used for holidaying. In the NP we came across Stripey and his sisters following their mum. In the lighthouse you can see where one of the locals have made their nest. Good place to keep an eye on predators.Read more
