Port Lincoln to Port Augusta. Via a long and winding road. Walked along foreshore in Port Lincoln this morning.

Day 43 – Port Lincoln

After a quick brekkie, we met the famous Australian Melbourne Cup winner, Makybe Diva. The town wanted to celebrate the horse so they had a statue erected on the foreshore.

Day 43 – Cowell

Our next stop was Whyalla. We looked for the town lookout (Hummock Hill). This looked over the port and local waterways.

Rain starting to grey the skies and dull the mood. Drove up to the local lookout (Winter Hill Lookout). The views range from Port Lincoln to the Eyre Peninsula.

Apparently Queen Elizabeth  herself was at this lookout at Hummock Hill in 1986 where she unveilled a plaque, cheers Queenie. Pics were great.

TV, beer, comfy bed.
