Adelaide to Big Bend Lookout at Nildottie

sunny 36 °C


Day 16 Adelaide to Langhorne Creek
After 3 nights in Adelaide, we drove down to Victor Harbour which is a beautiful old town which was once a whaling station. We had a look at the horse drawn tram which leaves the mainland and crosses over to an island. Lovely horses.

We walked all around the town and then had lunch sitting on the beachside then drove towards our overnight stopping camp at Langhorne Creek via Goolwa and Strathalbyn. The free grassy campsite is set amongst trees.

Just an update on Pommy Bob’s Friends son. It now appears that his injuries are the result of a “King Hit” where he was punched and as he fell he hit his head on the kerb. The police are searching for the person who did the act.

Day 17 Langhorne Creek to Big Bend Lookout on the Murray
After a good nights sleep at Langhorne Creek we continued our journey and visited Wellington where we crossed the Murray River on a car ferry before arriving at Tailem Bend. The Murray River is the 3rd longest navigable river in the world after The Amazon and The Nile. It is 2756 km long.

We walked around town then drove on to Murray Bridge and took photos of both the old road and rail bridges here.

Onwards to Mannum where we again crossed the Murray on a ferry. The scenery along the way today has been pretty boring. The only thing going for it the views of the river which in some places are spectacular with fairly high and colourful cliffs.

We continued on to our rest stop for the night just past Nildottie where we took a ferry ride again to Big Bend Lookout.

The wind is fairly strong and the weather is both quite dry and hot. (36 deg C). (40.3 deg in the caravan).
