6 Comments

No journey up or down the Stuart Highway through the centre of Australia is complete without visiting the Daly Waters Historic Pub. You will see a few Aussie pubs with some similarities to the Daly Waters, where travellers leave their mark.

Farina in Outback South Australia

I’ve never experienced another destination quite like Farina in the far north of South Australia. To a first time visitor it’s hard to imagine just why you might choose to have a holiday in a ghost town of stone ruins, on a dry and dusty sheep station in the outback, but spend a bit of time here and you may just get bitten by the Farina bug, figuratively not literally.

Naturally Colourful Mid North South Australia

The Mid North region of South Australia has particularly eye catching views in spring, mainly due to it being Canola season. Driving through the region your eyes are assaulted with the most brilliant colours and the whole area looks like it’s been draped in a patchwork quilt of the brightest greens, yellows and purples, thanks to the Salvation Jane growing. As you drive along there are plenty of old stone ruins, bridges and farm houses to see.
