10th October

We arrived in Ceduna yesterday about lunch time. Staying at the Foreshore Caravan Park, here for two nights and then will travel to Port Augusta. The CBD is located 50m from the entrance gate. After lunch we walked into town to stock up on fresh fruit and veges as we were not allowed to carry any over the border.

Aaaargh the strong gusty winds have blown up storm clouds and rain over night. Oh well getting use to it now.

Not much on the agenda,have a bit of a look around before fueling up. Driving over to Thevenard 3km east of Ceduna we discovered the Thevenard Port Precinct. The port handles bulk grain,Gypsum and salt. Situated on the isolated Eyre Peninsula the railway network receives several trains daily of bulk Gypsum from Kevin Mine near Penong.

Ceduna is a small town on the west coast region of South Aust, situated in the north west corner of Eyre Peninsula facing the islands of Nuyts Archipelago.

The name Ceduna is a corruption of the local aboriginal word 'Chedoona' and is said to mean a place to sit down and rest.

Trevor and Carol are still in Esperance waiting on a part for the car to be flown over from Sydney. Looks like we won't be catching up till we arrive home.
