Family time in Quorn

On Tues 19th July we left Streaky Bay for Quorn. Along the way we stopped at Kimba – this is exactly half way across Australia! It is also known for another big icon, the big galah.



About 4pm we arrived in Quorn, an old town in the Flinders Ranges. Jude’s cousins Jen, Garry and Elizabeth live here.  After settling into the caravan park we went over to visit with the family. We ended up staying for dinner and chattered the evening away.


Wednesday morning saw us back early so Garry could take us on a day trip thru the Flinders Ranges.

The Flinders Ranges are the largest mountain range in South Australia, which starts about 200 km north of Adelaide. The discontinuous ranges stretch for over 430 km from Port Pirie to Lake Callabonna. Words cannot describe the majesty and beauty of this area.  It is awe inspiring and leaves you feeling motivated to write soul stirring poetry!! We saw kangaroos, euro’s (a smaller type of roo), emu’s, the rare yellow footed rock wallaby and lots of sheep. The bird life was abundant and beautiful. We can’t thank Garry enough for all his driving and amazing knowledge and passion for the area.

That evening we joined Garry, Jen, Elizabeth and Courtney for dinner at the local pub. The food was delicious and the company was superb with lots of raucous laughter.
