Mouth of the Murray

After the Barossa we went to Hahndorf which is a small German village because in the 1800s many German people were fleeing their country because the king of Prussia wanted them all to practice his religion. Many of the German migrants settled in the Barossa Valley and around Adelaide.

We then went to Victor Harbor where we rode on an exciting horse drawn tram that went from the mainland across to Granite Island where there is a colony of little penguins (apparently you can’t call them fairy penguins anymore because they get upset).

It was very slow, so slow that a man walking could beat it but it was still fun. We also went to the Mouth of the Murray which was very interesting. The Murray Mouth is very small and often gets blocked with sand so they have to dredge it constantly. I was surprised that the Mouth of the biggest river in Australia was so narrow.
