I figured that hiring a car was going to be the best way to link up a few places in South Australia that I was interested in seeing, so the day after my return from Kangaroo Island I was heading north-east in a Toyota Corolla with only 3,000km on the clock. My progress skirted the Barossa Valley and entered the Riverland region, with foliage and river photo stops at regular intervals. With traffic being light on the roads, it was pleasant driving, though I strayed rather further east than intended, and had to go some to get to my intended sleeping spot by nightfall.

The sweetly named town of Quorn was where I had chosen to rest my head. No-one else was in the dorm, so my evening was spent dining at the Criterion Hotel (menu - anything as long as it's schnitzel), then sinking a couple of beers in the bar (which contained a blow-up doll in fatigues, bearing the label "Criterion Combat Barbie").
