Kingston to Mount Gambier.

I am still in South Australia heading east towards Victoria. I saw this Echidna come out of the bush at the conservation park at Kingston. I think someone from the house in front had left the bucket of water for the Echidna.

The Blue Lake crater, at Mount Gambier was formed about 4500 years ago. It was created by explosive eruptions depositing layers of ash. The Lake is flat bottomed with an average depth of 70 meters.
