Bye Bye Flinders – Hello Eyre Peninsula

Yay we have internet again!! Really we didn’t miss it or not having 3G! Back to using phone cards and phone booths again. We finished our stint at Arkaroola Wilderness Sanctuary just before Xmas – the temps were rising and the tourists were becoming scarcer – so we said our goodbyes to a wonderful place and headed south. If you are ever visiting the Flinders Ranges in South Australia you must detour to Arkaroola to experience the arid, dry & truly spectacular scenery of this area. (But beware the roads can be rough and very dusty) The Ridgetop Tour is a must-do (no you wouldn’t take your own vehicle there even if you could) and there are other tracks around the property that can test you and your vehicle, including Echo Camp backtrack. Check it out at: www.arkaroola.com.au

We are now making our way around the Eyre Peninsula – slowly. We spent Xmas and New Years on a beach near Whyalla called Fitzgerald Bay & Pt Lowly. Lovely spot, Pt Lowly was busy with travellers so we stopped at Fitzgerald Bay instead as less people. We are now making our way towards Port Lincoln – at the bottom of the peninsula by Australia Day. There is a festival called Tunarama being held which should be some fun. I’m most looking forward to going to a hairdresser! It’s been nearly 5 months since my last cut and I’m feeling & looking like a yeti!

I have uploaded some more photos to my catalogues of where we have been plus there are some below. Enjoy.
