Some places we've been and some places we're going.

Our day started with a delicious breakfast.

I was on a bit of a mystery tour this trip but “The Fount of all Knowledge” knew where he was going, apparently to Porter Lagoon, a popular swimming place with a Boat Club and Tennis Club …… if you were here 100 years ago!

We drove through Burra and out to World’s End Campground, a site with permanent water. Apparently the name came about because early settlers believed it would be very risky to venture further out into the arid country and the first leaseholder of the land built his station near here.

After leaving the Worlds End we drove up the Hallelujah Hills and along the Rim Road which gives wonderful views of the land below. Windy Hill Radio Site was at the top of the highest hill – it’s not a road to take a caravan along.

Robertstown was a little place I’d never heard of but it appealed to me straight away with its sculpture, memorial seats and great cartoons about the town.

Kapunda gets a much bigger dot on the map than Robertstown and it was our last stop on the way home. Like so many towns in the mid-north it has lovely old buildings but what stands out for me are its murals.

This little trip was a reminder that you don’t have to travel far, far away to find new and interesting places.

  1. Gosh, how dry it is now compared to when they needed a bridge across the river! Love the pics. Would love to go to the Kapunda Celtic music festival. Loved the pic of the old pepper tree. My grandmother at Gawler used to have a couple of pepper trees out back by the outside toiilet which looked similar to your “mod cons” photo. Such an interesting trip Sue. Was looking for a photo of you with your new haircut but didn’t see one! 🥰
