We couldn't resist a quick visit to sleeping town of Terowie which so fascinated us last time we were here. The photo of old cars is still the most visited post in this blog.

In South Australia there is a distinct change in architecture and certain arid feel to the landscape - you can tell these places are hot in summer but were beautiful in the winter.
Winam asked to know more about this town so here is a quick summary - according to the web population is around 2000 but it felt smaller than that. It has mostly old homes and shops similar to the above. It's close enough to Adelaide to attract weekenders, in newer homes on the other side of the river. There is a ferry crossing the river, an old wharf similar to that at Echuca (but not in great condition) and a historic railway station. The town is very neat and tidy and the locals seem to take a lot of pride in their history.

We threw out fruit to enter Victoria and restocked only to find out we were going to have to throw it out to enter South Australia and this time they were checking vehicles. Fortunately we had been warned and ate up what we had.
This landscape shot is deceptive. We saw plenty of vineyards and orange groves. But as you move through South Australia the landscape constantly changes.
