The Barossa and Fleurieu Peninsula SA

Towards the end of January it was time to move on. We headed towards the Barossa Valley and found a small caravan park at Eden Valley, part of a recreation grounds. Quiet, small and best of all had an oval for Jeda to exercise on. We visited the oldest wineries and thoroughly explored the region, most enjoyable.

Then on to Strathalbyn Caravan Park, also next to an oval, and caught up with friends we’d met years before in Darwin who now manage the park. It’s a great central location for day trips, dog friendly and next to an exercise oval. We did trips to Goolwa, Victor Harbour, Hindmarsh Island, Willunga (great Farmers Market), McLaren Vale and Cape Jervis.

After a number of weeks playing tourist we had to head north, which meant going through Adelaide. This doesn’t sit well with ‘B’ or myself and a restless night beforehand and dual headaches accompanied our trip the next day. We made it through (no thanks to our GPS) and on to Gawler, Port Parham and Port Augusta to head back to the Eyre Peninsula.
