Eyre Peninsula

We left Coober Pedy to drive the 560kms to Port Augusta later than intended. Buying opals is time consuming! We stopped at a couple of scenic lookouts and once for fuel. It was late when we hit the coast at Port Augusta but what a difference in temperature. A cool evening with no fans running in the van. The first time for ages. The main point of this years journey - visiting the red centre - is now over and we are going south on the coast for a couple of weeks to relax, eat some great food and enjoy the cooler temperatures.

The Eyre Peninsula in South Australa is bounded on the east by the Spencer Gulf and on the west by the Great Australian Bight. It is named after the explorer John Eyre who explored the region in 1839 - 1841. It is a great area for seafood, oysters in particular. It also has stunning wild beaches and national parks.

Sadly, now is the time to bid fairwell to our travelling companions of the last 10 days, Andy and Karen. They have been great company. It will feel strange over the next few days not having them around.
