ExplorOz - David & Michelle

We enjoyed a more relaxed morning with time allocated to exploring behind the dunes and lakes in the nearby Chadinga Conservation Reserve before heading back to the highway. On departing our camp we turned our watches forward the final hour for the transition to SA and checked our larder for fruit and veg as we would be coming to a quarantine checkpoint at Ceduna (east bound checkpoint only).

At Penong we noted the fuel price had dropped down to $1.06, and at Port Augusta was $1.035. Finally, at around 6.30pm we arrived at Peterborough to the hospitality of ExplorOz Members who had invited us to stay on our way through. Although we had never met, we were instantly made to feel comfortable and ushered into showers. Once we were clean enough to be allowed to sit in the formal dining room, we found ourselves treated to a wonderful 3 course meal and settled into engaging conversation that stemmed right into the wee hours of the morning.
