"Best town this side of the black stump" Cowell by iandsmith

Cowell Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 30 photos

An interesting village

A stop at Cowell wasn't planned but, when we saw the sign for the quandong farm well, how could we resist. Thus it was that we discovered this little gem on the east coast of the Eyre Peninsula.
If you've ever wondered where the mythical "black stump" of Australian legend is well, it's here.........................one of them anyway!

Pros and Cons

    The black stump my foot...well maybe not my foot but yes a black stump. By the way I don't think that Bob is a pig......he sounds like your very best friend next to rose marie. Carole.
