Day 1: Port Pirie
Australia is a big island, actually the biggest in the world, and it offers many different climate zones. While it was cold and nasty in the south in late May, the north around Darwin had its best season.
And because Tony is a good-weather campervan and we are good-weather campers we decided to move the Barossa Valley, Adelaide and Kangaroo Island to the second half of our Australia trip and cross that continent as quick as possible.
And as we knew that it would be a big drive of more than 3’000 km through the Australian Outback, with mostly no cell phone reception, gas stations or water, we wanted to be sure we would make it. But precisely on our way to Port Pirie, close to Adelaide, Tony shocked us.
