Day 27: Tuesday 24th January

Ceduna - Port Germein

sunny 39 °C

We were both rather tired this morning and took our time getting packed up. We decided to have more frequent stops to avoid getting sleepy. We stopped in at Wirrulla, "the town with a secret."

They have big ants at Poochera.

We fuelled up and then headed for the next stop, Wudinna. On the highway we were waved off the road by an oversize convoy coming in the opposite direction. There have been many big pieces of machinery being transported in this way.

At Wudinna we decided we didn't need a break and continued on to Kimba where we had lunch.

From there to Port Augusta was long and hot. The temperature peaked at 39 degrees and I would have stopped but there was nowhere with shade. Once we reached Port Augusta we had a break and a cold drink! We hadn't chosen our destination for the night and ended up riding another 70km to Port Germein, which book-ended our trip rather nicely. We set up the tent and relaxed for a while before cooking dinner in the camp kitchen.
