The only thing on today’s agenda, apart from chillin’, was to visit the Arid Land Botanical Gardens just north of Pt Augusta. We had seen these in passing on our recent trip to Coober Pedy and had also heard about them so we put them on the agenda. So after a fairly lazy start to the day we headed off about 10ish for the 10 minute drive. It is very well set up and well-marked with our first port of call the redcliff’s lookout.

This looks out over the river flats and mangroves and has a magnificent back drop of mountains in the distance. A short walk to the lookout provided even better vista’s back towards Pt Augusta.

There is no “where’s Dougal” today cause we only went to the gardens and that would be too easy. Di has rated the coffee as “good” and the ratings have taken a bit more form with so so being – not impressed progressing through good, very good to excellent, excellent being unsurpassed pleasure.
Tomorrow the real adventure begins as we leave for Ceduna and Nundroo.
