If you haven’t heard of Mount Gambier or the Limestone Coast of South Australia, I’d say you’re in the majority. Most Aussies probably don’t even know about this very under-touristed part of their own country.

This month we begrudgingly left the coast and summer behind for winter in the Outback!
The bulk of May was spent in northern South Australia before we crossed the border into the Northern Territory.
It’s a pretty big call to make, but I’m declaring the scenic drive through Bunyeroo Gorge and Brachina Gorge the BEST thing to do in the Flinders Ranges.
Ok, let’s back up a minute.
April was the month I hit my stride, in terms of this whole caravan life thing.
We traversed South Australia from southeast to north, bingeing on beaches and wine the whole way, and it was absolutely glorious.
March was a mixed bag overall, I’d say. We had some great weather, and some horrendous weather. We had amazing days and we had blah days (usually directly correlated with the weather).
So what else is there to see in Australia after you’ve done Sydney, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Outback?
LOTS of things. SO many things! Some more popular and touristed than others… others, more off the beaten path.
Often when I’m road tripping, it’s all about what I’m seeing and doing and less about where I’m resting my head at night. Just give me a flat patch of grass or dirt in a somewhat quiet spot, ya know?
Do you ever have a month that could so easily be summed up by one recurring theme? For me, October 2016 was all about good people. I don’t often look at my life or travels through a people-centric lens (because, well, that’s just not how we introverts roll), but if anything this month was a heathy reminder that good things can come from venturing beyond my introvert bubble.
I went into my 5 day Kangaroo Island road trip last week armed with a stack of brochures I picked up somewhere between Adelaide Airport and Penneshaw.
I swear I don’t normally hoard pamphlets, but geez – there’s really not much information online when you Google “things to do in Kangaroo Island”.
