On a recent visit to the town of Normanville on the western side of the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, I was able to find some recently created street art. These were completed in September 2020 and are another example of local artists being used to brighten up spaces by painting scenes of the region.
You know it’s going to be a great stay in a caravan park when it begins with winning a bottle of wine. We were staying at the McLaren Vale Lakeside Caravan Park and the husband has taken a lucky guess in a competition which saw him win a bottle of Ekhidna Wines Shiraz from one of the local wineries (and one of our favourites) in this southern vales wine region of South Australia.

I have a favourite poem written by an Australian woman named Dorothea Mackeller, called ‘My Country’. She wrote the poem at the age of 22, while living in England and homesick for her country, Australia. It was first published in 1908.

The Quorn Caravan Park is a very neat and tidy park to stay in on a trip to the Flinders Ranges and especially if you are in town to see the Quorn Silo Light Show. Quorn is seen as the gateway to the Southern Flinders Ranges and rock wallaby statues greet you as you enter town.
A recent visit to Morgan turned into a discovery of just how important this historic town on the Murray River in South Australia was, in the peak of river trade days. One original building in particular grabs your attention as you drive into town, for its sheer size and the historic bold painted name on it. The A.H Landseer – Shipping and Forwarding Agents building has stood the test of time since being built in 1878 and the huge 30 metre long limestone structure today houses the town’s museum. It was once the biggest river trade agent on the Murray River.
