South Flinders Ranges to Ingomar Rest
Friday - 11th June
Still in Pt. Augusta, headed out to Quorn in the South Flinders Ranges for
the day, following the track of the restored Pichi Richi Railway, missed
out on a ride though as train only running weekends. Travelled the scenic
route in a loop north of Quorn, lots of abandoned stone farm-houses and
great scenery including the Warren Gorge, but missed seeing the yellow
footed rock wallabies.
Park well maintained with great views across to the South Flinders Ranges,
just watch the security.
Saturday - 12th June
Departed Pt. Augusta around 8:45 headed north up the Sturt Highway.
Country-side very green from recent rains. Visited Woomera and checked out
the rocket displays and the detention centre, very tidy little town but like
a ghost town, nobody around. Stopped up the road at Lake Hart for lunch,
quite a few travellers enjoying the sunshine and the view of the lake full of
water (apparently a rare event). Pushed on north and overnighted at the
Ingomar Rest Stop. Had a couple of reds and sat under the stars around a
fire with Brian and Ermagarde. Then a very restful sleep only to be woken
at 5am by two Road Train drivers idling their diesels outside our van while
they had a bit of a chat for a while. Eventually they drove off and we
could return to sleep.
