Victoria to Adelaide

It was a quiet morning at Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve - the perfect time for wildlife watching.

Another koala!  I will never tire of looking at these furry creatures.  This one stayed awake long enough for a "action shot", or what qualifies as one in the life of a koala:


And... back to sleep...


Plenty of kangaroos to admire.  I don't get the whole "spending your life leaning forward" idea, but I sure would love some strong hind legs like those.  And maybe a tail to help me balance.


To complete the trifecta - an emu wandering around the grounds, now that's a large bird:


Jucy in the jungle:


More roos:


Momma with a joey!  I literally said, "my life is complete."


Back on the road, just driving along, when we spotted a fence covered in shoes, boots, and other footwear, stretching at least 200 meters along a field.  Even a pair of swim fins.  Weird!


Mount Gambier had several interesting diversions (including an excellent pie shop, should have gotten a photo of that too).  Here is the prettiest sinkhole I have ever seen:



The town embraced it, turned it into a garden, and added walking paths down to the bottom.  Very cool.


The other sinkhole in town, not quite as impressive but still something to ponder:


The lovely Blue Lake south of town:


That's all the time we had for stops along the way.  Next up = Adelaide...
