      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 …

It became a tourist attraction, especially as back then a third of the bottom of the sink hole was a lake and had a boat ...

      ... that of the previous afternoon. Rolling fields littered with rolled hay bales intermingled with planned forest, and as we made our way back to the coast, some beautiful bays began to present themselves.

This numerically ambiguous feature was a collection of eight limestone stacks of varying size and shape, situated just off the coast in a way similar to old Harry's Rocks ...

      ... than eating greasy fish and chips at some dodgy small local place. There are exceptions ofcourse!

      We want to let the kids play a little before we continue a longer drive to the Blue Lake in Mount Gambier. When we are nearly finished we meet that elderly Belgian couple that we met at the Twelve Apostles yesterday and at Boat Bay this morning for the third time. They both look like scientists so I ask them about the birds. Aparently, they have all been killed ...

      ... hunting down illegal cashew nuts or illicit dark chocolate. On eventually crossing the border we saw that there was simply a sign inviting us to drop anything not permitted into a quarantine bin at the side of the road. We decided we were fine and carried on.

      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!
