Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Terowie 4 May 2006

The countryside has changed yet again to undulating farm land, brimming with tough, yellow winter grass. Peterborough is a small town of about 1500 people that had a long history as a railway junction. It has many delightful stone public and private buildings with alas, many vacant shops. Had an enjoyable morning walking around
In the afternoon, we headed for Terowie, a tiny village that was forgotten by time. Terowie was once an important railway town with a populace of 3000 but now has about 150 people. However all the infrastructure has remained, so there are the vestiges of an impressive main street that unfortunately has a shop and a pub left. The highlight for the day was standing with the locals and watching a white cat named Blackie, playing with a mouse. Went for a drink at the pub and were soon engrossed in the local gossip. We had a lot of fun and have an invitation to stay with a local farmer when we get back from Clare.
