Baird Bay to Murphy’s Haystacks

Leave a comment

Let me start this with, the reason to go to Baird Bay is to swim with dolphins and sealions! Normally that is, but not during winter while we are here. The tours to see and swim with them starts again in September.

But even without that, it’s also a lovely spot to visit and stay in a well maintained free camp, ($10 per night) and go fishing off the beach or in a boat.

Hooray for Haslam

1 Comment

Just as we’re thinking our fishing quests on this holiday were looking too optimistic, we were saved by the Haslam jetty.  A free camp with a jetty in walking distance was the drawcard for us to pay this place a visit and boy did it pay us back big time.

Eyre Peninsula Rocks

7 Comments

My oh my, Australia has some big rocks and we’ve seen quite a few in our travels, but been guilty of not checking out some of the best in our own backyard in South Australia, so to speak.

We’ve finally made it back to the Eyre Peninsula and having the luxury of time, we can finally tick off a few places and landmarks that have been on our to-do list for a while.

Gourmet Greenock – Barossa Valley

2 Comments

As a way to support South Australian Tourism and businesses, the state’s tourism authority has been gifting ‘Great State Vouchers’ which enable people to have an ‘experience’ or get accommodation at a very reduced price to boost the economy in these sectors. One of these vouchers I was able to use recently to book a wine and cheese flight at a Barossa winery.

There were a number of establishments to choose from, and I chose this particular winery with the thought of also discovering a different part of the Barossa Valley that I wasn’t too familiar with.  The larger towns of Tanunda and Nuriootpa are probably the busier and more well-known towns and they have very good caravan parks and loads of things to do in those centres.

Stuart Highway Adelaide to Darwin – the Stats

9 Comments

For those planning a driving holiday along the Stuart Highway which runs from south to north of Australia, here are a few facts and figures as they stacked up for us on a 4 week (25 day) getaway. Our travelling ‘rig’ is a Toyota Landcruiser 200 series V8 diesel, and our caravan is a 22ft Jayco Silverline.

Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles NT

5 Comments

This is one spot I can’t pass without staying at, whenever we travel in the Northern Territory. Karlu Karlu, also known as the Devils Marbles, has a very mysterious feel about it and never fails to leave you awestruck.

The way they were formed isn’t that mysterious though, the balancing marble like boulders are a result of a process over millions of years where solid granite rocks have eroded away due to the elements and left weathered granite boulders perched on rock platforms.
