Closed on Saturday! Port Augusta

Port Augusta is a small city that sprawls across the Spencer Gulf - not in the least Majestic as it's name implies. Much of the city centre seemed closed and we managed to find just one cafe!

We spent several hours absorbed in the displays of the Wadlata Outback Centre. They cover the history of the Australian Outback, from its origins pre Godwanaland, to the present day.

The weather forecast is for rain over the next couple of days, so we've decided to wait here an extra day before heading off. Camping will be on red mud otherwise!

Meanwhile we're collecting rations and water supplies for our first two days in the desert.
