Australia, South Australia, Wines Add comments

I forgot to mention one of the highlights of the Nullarbor Plain as we came across a few days ago: the longest golf course in the world.  Stretched across a couple of thousand kilometers, the Nullarbor Golf Links has a hole at each town and a few scenic sights along the plain.  It’d be a […]

At the southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula are Coffin Bay and Lincoln National Parks: lengthy stretches of striking limestone cliffs and beautiful secluded beaches.  We spent a few days exploring Coffin Bay National Park after stopping off in Coffin Bay itself to sample Australia’s most famous oysters.  We were a little disappointed with the […]

Lake Eyre, Oodnadatta and Dalhousie Springs

Australia, South Australia Add comments

Planet View: S28°54.571′ E136°20.338′ Street View: S28°54.571′ E136°20.338′ An early start this morning as we were woken at sunrise by flocks of hundreds of sulphur-crested cockatoos that inhabit the dry creek bed at Farina.  Talk about nature’s alarm clock!  A quick Greek coffee, something both of us are addicted to after our time in Greece, […]
