Roadside Stops

Posted elsewhere is the meagre product of last week's Adelaide trip.
Here are some personal snaps taken along the 550 mile drive to South Australia.
1.
Hot and windy at Kerang where we took advantage of a school bus shelter to have lunch.

2.
Breakfast after an overnight camp by the roadside.
3.

4.
Roadside Public Toilet.

5.
The Border - we were stopped at the Agricultural Quarantine Station where an officer relieved us of a kilo of choice Victorian Tomatoes!

6.
The descent through the Heysen Tunnels into Adelaide from the Mt Lofty Ranges

7.
The Adelaide Railway Station

8.
Beef Schnitzel Parmagiana at the Hahndorf Inn
9.

Re: Roadside Stops

"Roadside Public Toilet" - I have been told that the facilities in the outback can be pretty rustic, but that is a bit too rustic for me!

"we were stopped at the Agricultural Quarantine Station where an officer relieved us of a kilo of choice Victorian Tomatoes!" - now all he needs is a car with some eggs and bacon and he is set up for breakfast.

Some nice images of what I hope was a memorable road trip. I have heard first hand accounts before of the neurosis of Australian quarantine rules (I used to be a Port Health Officer) but I did not realise they applied interstate.

Thanks for posting,

Gerry

Re: Roadside Stops

Ah! That trusty old Trangia. What was the flushing system for that lavatory? I love that interior of the railway station, old stations in the UK are not nice places. Nice set of images.

Re: Roadside Stops

The placement of that roadside toilet is fairly typical of uncouth Aussie humour and I share your cynicism as to the likely fate of the confiscated tomatoes.

South Australia and Tasmania both have stringent quarantine rules prohibiting people from bringing fruit into the State.

Thanks Gerry.

The flushing system of that lavatory was of the biological composting type.

Thanks David.

Re: Roadside Stops

An informative set of shots of the "real" Australia, methinks. Should find out myself in 18 months time when we visit Melbourne!
