Good Morning Everyone.

I trust that you are having a great weekend, wherever you are in this great Nation of ours.

Yesterday Fiona and I did a long Saturday drive ( as you do when it is a perfect 24° degree day ) to visit a special part of our State for the sole purpose of visiting a Lighthouse. This is no ordinary lighthouse, but something very special. We also dropped in to inspect another very important Church only around 5 kilometres away.

Do you know where these images are take and what is so special about these two locations.

Happy answering and lets see how long it takes to get the correct answers.

Cheers

Not familiar with the church, but the lighthouse is Australia's only inland light house!

Hi Rob

You go to the top of the class. It is indeed Australia's and the more importantly, also the Southern Hemispheres only inland Lighthouse located at Point Malcolm.

Now that you know where it is, the answer is to the second question should be easy now.

Have another go.......lol

Raukkan Church on the $50 note behind David Uniapon.

That is a nice drive down there.

Hi Pete

Well done on another correct answer. It was a perfect day down there for sure and it is through sites like this, that we hope to inspire other travellers through our great Coorong area to take the detour off of the main highway and visit these special and important places

Thanks for taking your time to answer the last question.





Cheers

Hi Odog

Thanks for that and if you are ever passing through the Upper Coorong, the small detour is well worth it. If you are into free camping, there is a great free camp at Narrung only 5 kilometres from Raulkkan.



Cheers

Hi Frank

Like all parts of Australia, there are always some very interesting important history lessons right on our own doorsteps

If you are every over near the Upper Coorong, the small detour is well worth it.



Cheers
