And On to Kingoonya

We had a relaxing breakfast, not leaving until after morning tea for our short drive out to Kingoonya (on the traditional lands of the Kokatha people). Unfortunately it looks like the road from Glendambo to Kingoonya hasn’t been graded since the last time we were here five years ago, so the 41 kilometre trip took us about an hour and a quarter. Talking to one of the owners of the pub we discovered there is a much better track coming in from the north which will take us back to the highway toward Coober Pedy

We had a beer with lunch at the Kingoonya Hotel and watched as two freight trains passed by on the Trans Australian Railway line. We went up to the caravan park located 100 metres passed the hotel on the Wirrulla Road. $20 for a powered site for the night with rope barriers up to stop the wandering horses from getting in amongst the paying guests. It’s pizza night tonight at the pub so looks like it will be pizzas back at camp tonight.
