Fleurieu Peninsula

Wow, what a great scenery. Lonely highways, bushland, farmland with a lot of cows or sheep, soft hills, salt lakes, pelicans, … just awesome the drive from Robe to the Fleurieu Peninsula (south of Adelaide).  Nearly in every town you find great playgrounds and sheltered BBQ’s for public use. We found such a place in Meningie, located at Lake Albert, where we stopped for lunch and had our Pizza left overs from last night just reheated on the BBQ. After that we drove on along Lake Alexandrina to Wellington from where we took a ferry that brought us over the Murray River to the other side. We drove on and suddenly saw a sign „Winery – cellars open“. OK, let’s go. We found a wonderful winery that was established 1850 by Frank Potts. We had the opportunity to visit the cellar and discover some very old requisites of how they made wine at that time. Of course we had some wine tasting as well and finally bought 3 bottles. One bottle is a sparkling Shiraz – very unusual. Just a few minutes down the road we found a free camping where we then spent the night. In Australia you find quite some free campgrounds maintained by the local communities. They mostly offer a simple toilet and that’s it. Just perfect for one night. And you always meet great people in such places. We met Chris with his two sons who asked Leila and Tosca to play together. They had a lot of fun and in the meantime Chris gave us a lot of great information on what to see and do in and around Adelaide and the Riverland along the Murray River. Thank you Chris!
