Port Augusta is the 5th largest city after Adelaide, Mount Gambier, Whyalla and Murray Bridge in South Australia.

One of its major industries is producing power.
It's also a natural harbour.

We had another good night at the same Caravan Park we always stay.
Day 6 and another fine day on our 2014 road trip. We are heading to KIMBA
