One thing I always look forward to at Christmas time in Australia is seeing what creative and clever decorations everyone puts up and each year there seems to be more of an effort, maybe especially in 2020 because we are all looking for a cheerful note to end the year on. The effort put in seems to be at another level in the rural areas in particular I find. In an agricultural area near where I live, the farmers have used their imaginations this year coming up with some new fun ideas.
The drive to this locality between the towns of Meadows and Goolwa in South Australia is a picturesque journey and a lunch stop at the Greenman Inn situated in this little community, around 63 kilometres from Adelaide, is the icing on the cake.
I have to start this with, if you’re an indecisive person, then you are really going to struggle at this restaurant. I’ll explain this later but first to where you’ll find this delicious dining experience with water views in South Australia.
This market has been a regular fixture in Victor Harbor for 30 years and is usually set up spreading along the esplanade, but on the Sunday just past, the organisers tried something different as a one off and instead around 76 stall holders stretched along the main shopping strip – Ocean Street.
The Bluff in Victor Harbor is a well-known landmark at the headland of Encounter Bay and was once the site of a whaling station. These days it’s still a favourite location to spot whales but thankfully now it’s just to enjoy seeing these giant creatures who come to these waters to rear their young during winter. To get the best vantage point, a walking trail to the summit will get your heart pumping but if you take a break here and there to stop and admire the view it’s worth the uphill effort. This point of land is named Rosetta Head or Kungkingguwar by the local Ramindjeri -Ngarrindjeri people.
Safety on the road is the most important part of caravan holidays, we all want to arrive safe and sound at our destinations. All safety aspects need to be considered before taking off towing a 3 ton house behind you including anti sway, ride levelers and braking controls. We have a complete service done on the caravan before planning a long journey but in between as with any vehicle, it pays to keep an eye on the tyres and general wear and tear.
