A quick pack up and we hit the road with a side trip out to the Gawler Ranges to have a brief look at that area – not too keen to spend too much time out in the heat. The red rocky ridges are spectacular. Just after the park entrance we got onto the 4WD track to the Organ Pipes – not a long drive but best to take it slow – and did a short walk up the gully to see the impressive geology and rock formations. Lots of goats throughout the area but that’s pretty common in many areas we are finding.
We got back on the Eyre Highway and found diesel at the Poochera roadhouse for a good price ($1.31c/L) so we filled up……113 litres…….. – we’re getting used to the $150 fuel bills! We pushed west towards Ceduna deciding to stop just outside town in Wittelbee Conservation Park. There was just one other bloke camping by himself on a roadtrip from Sydney to Perth. We found a sheltered spot out of the persistent coastal wind. No mobile reception so we missed Aunty Sar’s birthday but we’re sure she’ll understand!
One thought on “18 March – Wittelbee near Ceduna”
I love the rock formations and the colours and the kids on the magnificent formations. Sarah survived another birthday . Thomas turned 7 and was very happy on a dinosaur and fossil hunt in the ancient formations of southern England. We celebrated at Normanhurst for both of them.
