We travelled via Renmark to South Australia. Had lunch in Renmark (Pies and sausage roles in a Bakery) and did some shopping in Woolworths. Renmark has a beautiful main street with a park in the middle of the street. The smell of the roses was very intense.
We travelled on to Loxton where we had been invited to stay by an other couple on the caravanersforum. Great couple, great place. Beautiful gardens. Many different roses.
We learned that the area was settled by allotment of land to soldiers having returned from World War II in the early 50’s. The soldiers were alloted an area of land and given a Nissan Hut to live in while they established a home.
The Nissan hut still stands and is used as a machinery shed.
The cottage was built in the early 50s.
Competition from overseas has virtually killed the farming in this area. Following a couple of photos around the cottage.
