    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 …

Less than five minutes after making this statement, we were affronted by flashing blue lights: Dave had been caught doing 77kph in a 60 zone. Ugh.

    ... the local pub and noticed a sign saying that it was Schnitzel night - $11 a head. It sounded interesting so we went inside to find what looked like most of the village had squeezed in and were enjoying their schnitzels. So we joined them and very good it was too.
