Arrived around 11am after another day of outback driving. We had heard about the noise from shunting trains during the night so stayed in an old caravan park 7.5km out of town. Turned out really quiet, so we slept well. Unfortunately the park is becoming run down, but it is being cleaned and has plenty of hot water. The office is no longer in use as it's used as a store room and it took us 2 days to find someone to pay our money. Only cost $25 a night, so no complaints here LOL.

Went for a drive through the Flinders Ranges and it was a shock to the senses. They have had good rain here and the ranges were beautiful and green, and with the warmer, sunnier weather the wildflowers are beginning to open up.

Went to Quorn on Monday morning and it was really quiet. Called in to the Pichee Richee Railway, but it only runs on Sunday so we missed out by one day.

Had an enjoyable stay.
