Victoria to South Australia Tourist

First stop off for this blog post was Skipton, central Victoria, where I stopped off for a walk around the lake and a look at the op shops.

Then I kept heading west to Ararat, where I stayed at Green Hill Lake. Quite a nice little spot by the water with plenty of birds and shade for camping under. Horsham is quite a nice little town in the Wimmera district.

Just west of Horsham was this amazing big koala. I just had to stop and take a photo. It took my breath away.

Christmas day saw me on the road to Nhill through the Little Desert National Park. Header and hay. Before that I stopped at the Jane Duff Highway Park for a walk around the water-hole.

I spent a couple of days at Nhill and I spent most of it at Nhill Lake, enjoying the shade and the water skiing in the tiny little duck pond.

I guess they called it a desert because there was lots of sand. I went on a few walks in the park. I did not drive in because you need a four wheel drive.

On the Keith Hately Nature Walk you can see an old Mallee Fowl mound. I still have not seen a Mallee Fowl 🙁

And into South Australia. Near Bordertown, I went for a hopeful look at Poocher Swamp but it was dry.

Further North from Bordertown and into the Ngarkat Conservation Park. More mallee bush for miles and miles.
