Loxton – a town on the south bank of the River Murray in the Riverland region approximately 256 Kms to Adelaide. A town known for its orchards, vineyards and Xmas lights. You can get your fill of oranges, apricots, avocados, wine, fresh eggs and plenty more. A pretty town with nice walks by the river or through the town. If you ever visit I would recommend the Pizza Bar in the main street. Not just pizza but chicken, fish and chips etc. Yummy! Thanks goodness for the nice walks.
The Big Pelican. It was first made for the Loxton Mardi Gras in 1979 and then permanently relocated to this spot near the river in 1998.
Tree of Knowledge. I found this really interesting and somewhat astounding to think the water levels of the river could ever reach this high.

Loxton lights festival, now in its 28th year. We were not actually there on the night, but there are lots of Xmas lights happening around the town.
Fishing on the river bank.
Karoonda wheat silos. So many silos are now beautifully painted by many talented artists around Australia. You can now visit them by following the ‘Silo Art Trail’. We passed through Karoonda on our way to Murray Bridge and were welcomed by this spectacular art work.
To all of you that have followed, thank you and we hope you have enjoyed the trip. We will be having a Xmas break and resuming travelling next year once the weather cools a little. Chris and I wish everyone a really great Christmas and New Year. Be safe and look after each other. See ya next year xxx
