4 Weeks Australia in Pictures: Adeleide (the Market)

We left the Semaphore area and went to the city again. This time we decided to visit the marked and to enjoy some food.

We liked the market and we enjoyed our lunch with Asian specialties from the food stalls there, that was a great opportunity for some take away food for the next travelling day.

4 Weeks Australia in Pictures: Adelaide (Semaphore)

Adelaide is really a big town, but the traffic is so well organized that we had the impression there is a lot of space in this town.

That morning we decided to visit the area of the caravan park near the sea and we went to Semaphore area.

The wind that surprised us during the night was still there, so no bathing day again!

4 Weeks Australia in Pictures: Adeleide (the City)

We arrived in the afternoon in Adelaide, found our place in the caravan park and went to the city. This was the really first hot day we had in Australia, and we enjoyed the heat. By public transport we arrived into the center and we enjoyed walking around and taking pictures. We crossed many road full of bicycles until we found out that a special event had just found.

4 Weeks Australia in Pictures: Miningie at Lake Albert (from Kingston to Adelaide)

We left the Coorong National Park, we left the coast, but we had not long to wait until we arrived at Lake Albert.

We stopped at the park for our  pic-nick lunch at the shadow under the tree. The place was a good choice as a full infrastructure for picnic is available here.

For those who have more time I would recommend this place and sorrounding and perhaps to stay here overnight.

4 Weeks Australia in Pictures: Coorong National Park (from Kingston to Adelaide)

We left Kinston early in the morning as we knew we would have a long day and we will reach Adelaide only in the evening.

The first stop was the Coorong National Park where we spent some hours wondering the flora and the animal life.

Stretching more than 130 kilometers, the Coorong National Park includes sand dunes, backwater, salty lakes and is a refuge for pelicans, ducks, swans, cormorants, terns, grebes and numerous species of migratory birds.

We were glad we hat the possibility to see a shingleback lizard (Tiliqua rugosa) and take some picture of it.

4 Weeks Australia in Pictures: Kingston

After 3 days in Warrnambool we left Victory and we reached in South Australia. After about 340 km drive along an empty highway, plenty of optical illusions (fata morgana) we reached Kingston.

This place is the ‘Gateway to the South East’, Kingston S.E. is at the southern end of Coorong National Park on Lacepede Bay. This area was once home to the Ngarrindjeri, Aboriginal river people of the lower Murray River, western Fleurieu Peninsula, and the Coorong of southern, central Australia.

This famous lobster town was established in 1858 and its shallow lakes and lagoons are a haven for birdlife. The big lobster and the lighthouse are the most photographed emblem of Kingston.
