On February 13th, we flew
from Christchurch, New Zealand, to the
spectacular and vibrant city of Sydney,
Australia. After spending about a week enjoying the sights, people, and
gastronomic delights at some top restaurants, we flew about three hours West to
Adelaide. Adelaide is where we began our "driving
tour" of the state of South Australia.
Along the way, we visited some of the most famous wine regions of the country
including the Barossa, McLaren Vale and the Coonawara.
Our drive along the southern coastline of Australia ultimately
connected us to the state of Victoria, home to the
marvelous city of Melbourne. We spent about
14 days in total in the car touring these regions.
After a short loop back through Sydney,
we flew to the West Coast city of Perth, capital of
the state of Western Australia.
Perth is known as a modern city that is farthest from everything.
