Why you should travel the back roads to Burra

 The Road Less Travelled.

Recently I went from the Barossa Valley, (in South Australia) to Burra, a one and a half hour trip.

I used my trusty google maps and typed in Burra. 

When the first side road appeared (which was not on my route) I branched off and the nice google lady redirected me towards Burra on my new road. 

Consequently a one and a half hour trip took me 5 hours!

But the sights and sounds along these back roads was just beautiful! 

Red roads, green fields, livestock, wheat for miles and so many abandoned cottages.

I guess because of the harsh conditions many farmers left the land. Others built bigger and better ventilated farmhouses, and stayed on their farms. 

Incredible, exhilarating  and admirable! 

I hope you enjoy the images. See you next time. W.

Fields shaped and planted.
Vast fields stretching for miles
There is always one!
Even had time for a selfie.
