Today the boys would actually cross their path coming down from Darwin by driving through Port Augusta again on the way to Port Lincoln.
Driving around the Spencer Gulf of Port Augusta today ……….
Another nice drive through the Vinyards of the Barossa valley and then Team Lipstick was back in “wheat lands” with huge wheat farms on either side of the road as they were approaching the Southern Flinders.
Southern Flinders Ranges is a South Australian wine region, located east of Spencer Gulf. It is located to the east and north-east of Port Pirie. Though vines have been planted in the area since the 1890s, the Southern Flinders Ranges is a relatively new wine-growing region that began to emerged during the last 20 years of the 20th century.
Close to Melrose ( which is the oldest town in the southern flinders )and at the end of Mt Remarkable the boys visited the wine farm called Bartagunyha and tasted some of their nice red wine.
After making their way back to Melrose the Team drove towards Port Augusta leaving the mountain range behind and at this point, they crossed their path when they came down a few weeks ago from Darwin going up towards Sydney.
Turning South again they headed straight for Port Lincoln where they would stay over for the night.
It is situated on the shore of Boston Bay, which opens eastward into Spencer Gulf. It is the largest city in the West Coast region, and is located approximately 280 km as the crow flies from the State’s capital city of Adelaide
The city is reputed to have the most millionaires per capita in Australia.The town claims to be the “Seafood Capital of Australia”.
