Bordertown SA.

Monday 7th March 2001, Bordertown, SA.

We have now changed our travel plans already and gone on to South Australia to a small town of Bordertown, about 20K across the border. (see map) It was decided to bypass the couple of Victorian towns we had thought of visiting, like Hamilton, because we may need a bit more time up the centre than planned before the cold nights move in. It is forecast for a fair bit of rain over the next few days so we have decided to stop here for a week so we can have a chance to see around after the rain.

We had to battle through a swarm of locusts today almost for the entire trip. It was very reminiscent of our previous trip up the centre a few years ago when we encountered them before Coober Pedy.
