Hi there,

For those of you arriving late to this intrepid family journey through the heart of Australia, you may like to start reading at the beginning. Unfortunately, Blogger organises posts with those most recently created appearing first. So, if you jump in at the top, you're not going to get the full experience of this gritty blow-by-blow account of our adventure. As such, I suggest using the navigation window above and head down to March, where the first part of this journey began. Hopefully, by the end, you’ll be hooked. From there you can scroll upwards to continue the journey. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Alternatively, simply click on the following link to jump right there:

Port Augusta - we hardly knew ya!



Date:
01/04/2017
Location:
Port Augusta (South Australia)
Distance Travelled:
413 Km
Temperature:
Min:
12.9

Max:
24.1

Ok, this will be a quick one. Just an overnight pitstop on our way to our first real destination, Coober Pedy. Port Augusta was a nice place park up for the night. Good facilities at the camp site and a booze shop and petrol station just across the road. Not sure if those two services are meant to go together so well, but they served our purposes just fine.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see much of Port Augusta. In fact, we didn’t even get the camera out as we were driving hell for leather to make it before the caravan park reception closed for the night. We did however, manage to take a couple of hurried snaps out of the window – just to prove we were on the road again (it sure is flat out there!).

On the way to Port Augusta

Still, it broke up the journey and left us feeling rested to carry on the rest of the way to Coober Pedy in the morning. By all accounts, I’m sure I’ll have a lot to say about that destination in the next blog entry.

Night.

Bye ‘d bye,

Gregg
