Day 16 - Monday 21 May 2012

Port Lincoln

Mainly sunny today with a maximun of 19 degrees. We packed a picnic lunch and headed for the Lincoln National Park. First stop was the car park below the Stamford Hill monument where we had lunch. Our walk to the lookout was nearly aborted when David had a near encounter with a 3 foot black snake in the car park. The walk was 1.1 km return taking 25 minutes to the top and 15 minutes to come back down. The Monument was erected to commemorate the exploration of the area by Matthew Flinders in 1802. Flinders climbed to the top of hill looking for fresh water supplies and named the hill after a village in his homeland of Lincolnshire.
