August 16th & 17th
Given we spent the night on private property, we decided to start our day extra early and head towards Mount Gambier. This big, small town was our pit stop for groceries, but also an unpleasant surprise in the form of the realization we had a punctured tire. We continued south towards the coastal town of Port MacDonnell. Once the second largest port in Australia, this town proved to be quite deserted during the winter season. Nonetheless we had breakfast by the sea, and headed inland to find long, straight highways lined with never ending farming plains.
