Today we started 62 kms east of Madura (where we were going to stay)

Battled into headwinds today for 110 kms before lunch – enjoyed a long lunch at Eucla (lovely spot).

It was nice to get a hill into Eucla, probably the first hill since Perth (and it wasn’t that big!).

Random fan at the top of Eucla Hill!

We headed off after lunch with a nice tailwind and managed to do 211 kms for the day, ending up in South Australia, 52kms east of Border Village.

Signpost at Eucla

We saw a bunch of wildlife including emus, snakes, goannas, kangaroos and more.
