Von Victor Harbor aus ist es eine fünfstündige Fahrt bis zu unserem nächsten Ziel, Mount Gambier.
Hier übernachten wir im Old Mt. Gambier Gaol, einem ehemaligen Gefängnis. Beim check in bekommen wir die Codes für die Schliesstüren und einen Plan für einen selbstgeführten Tour über das Gelände. Wir haben eine 4-Bett Dorm reserviert, zum Glück …
... its volcanic history. After taking the opportunity to refuel and stock up on a few food bits at Woolworths supermarket we made our way to Umpherstpon Sink Hole. It's very similar to the Dell in Peacehaven. Just a bit bigger, deeper and rockier. It's also landscaped. In Victorian times a man (I forget his name) purchased the land, and landscaped the sink hole.

On, then, through Mount Gambier and northwards to Penola to check into our motel for the next two nights. Tomorrow, we'd organised a tour of the wineries of the famous Coonawarra wine region. Bring it on!
