29 May 2016 – Rawnsley Park Station (Flinders Ranges) to Port Augusta SA

Reluctantly it was time to move on.  Our stay in the Flinders Ranges has been very rewarding with magnificent scenery, a multitude of wildlife and good company.

With little fuss, we were ready to depart Rawnsley Park just after 8:30am.

Our drive today was relatively short so we were in no real hurry.

The scenery today looked different as the sun was finally shining.  We agreed that the cloud cover of recent days had added something special to the landscape.

We passed through Hawker and then stopped in Quorn.  After spending time at the railway station, we enjoyed morning tea.

The final part of the trip into Port Augusta saw us come past fields of saltbush before the expanse of Spencers Gulf opened in front of our eyes.

Today we only used 12.7 litres (per 100k’s) of fuel.

After checking into a caravan park, we welcomed the final couple of our group who arrived from Canberra.  Our group now consists of five couples.

Late in the afternoon we headed to the rail track to the east of Port Augusta to watch and photograph the Ghan heading north.  We were told by a local, who was also taking photographs, that the length of the train was equal to the longest ever.  After waiting patiently for the train to pass, we were able to take good video and heaps of pictures.

With three other couples, we had our evening meal in the Hannahville Hotel.  We were made very welcome by the owner and the food was nothing short of excellent.

After our evening meal we refuelled as several of the service stations in Port Augusta are out of diesel fuel.
