baroota october 09

If you're not sure where Baroota is - dont feel too bad, you're not on your own. It's
about half way between Port Pirie and Port Augusta near the top of the Spencer Gulf .

The Spencer Gulf Off Road Association have an awesome track and a couple of times a year we head up there for a fantastic weekend.

The track is on a parcel of land between the southern Flinders Ranges and the Gulf so the scenery is great on both sides! Because it's so far up the Gulf when the tide comes in it just creeps up the beach - no waves, it's quite weird.

Normally bone dry, there was a freak rain storm in the week leading up to the event, so by the afternoon of the first day it was getting hard to tell which car was which.


over she goes...

a great way to end the day

like something out of mad max

there's a gorgeous old house in the front paddock - the original farmhouse of the property
