Travel Tips for Port Augusta

Where the “Outback Meets the Sea”

by pedroswift

"Port Augusta is where the “Outback Meets the Sea”."

Located at the head of Spencer Gulf, Port Augusta is where the Eyre Highway which heads across the Nullarbour Plain to Western Australia and the Flinders/Lincoln Highways servicing the Eyre Peninsular converge with the highways from the south, east and north.
Anyone on a road trip to or from Western Australia will have to try pretty hard to avoid Port Augusta.
Looking for an insight into South Australian History? An insight into the Outback Australian spirit.? You can not go past the Wadlata Outback Centre. As the Michelin Green Guides say on their three star recommended sights -"Worth a Journey"! see the tip below

One thing that did catch my eye the first two verses of colonial poet, Henry Lawson's "The Never Never Land" - Hard to beat Henry's ability to put into verse the true Outback Spirit.

"The Never-Never Land by Henry Lawson"

By hut, homestead and shearing shed,
By railroad, coach and track-
By lonely graves where rest the dead,
Up-Country and Out-Back:
To where beneath the clustered stars
The dreamy plains expand-
My home lies wide a thousand miles
In Never-Never Land.

It lies beyond the farming belt,
Wide wastes of scrub and plain,
A blazing desert in the drought,
A lake-land after rain;
To the skyline sweeps the waving grass,
Or whirls the scorching sand-
A phantom land, a mystic realm!
The Never-Never Land.

Check Travelogue below for the rest of the poem.
