Mount Gambier to Adelaide SA

We did a couple of day trips when we were in Mount Gambier including back to Millicent to look through the museum there which was excellent value.

After heading up through Penola, Naracoorte and Keith we stopped a couple of nights at Mannum on the banks of the Murray. Both campgrounds were packed being a weekend. Ski boats were noisy as you can imagine during daylight hours. Sunday morning most of the weekend warriors packed up and left so it was peace and quiet on the Sunday evening.

We left Mannum early the next day as I wanted to get the solar seen to in Murray Bridge. Unfortunately every place I tried was booked solid and couldn’t squeeze me in. The best I could do was to take a booking for the following week.

We had a night at Harndorf at a very good caravan park just out of town. We had a look around the streets of Harndorf the next morning. As Claire didn’t fly out until early evening we took the scenic route to Adelaide and headed south through country back roads down to Myponga and eventually hitting the coast at Myponga Beach, half way between Cape Jervis and Adelaide. We had a look at all the coastal suburbs coming into Adelaide.

At Sellicks Hill we came across the Nan Hai Pu Tuo Temple of Australia. There is a 18m tall statue of a Buddha Goddess. She is the Goddess of mercy and is said to bring peace, harmony, prosperity and wealth to South Australia.
