One of the first things you’ll notice when visiting the regional town of Cleve, on South Australia’s Eastern Eyre Peninsula, is its rich agricultural surrounds. In every direction are fields of wheat, barley, canola and peas with a likely pasture of sheep grazing the day away in the shadow of the impressive wind farm at Mt Millar.

Australia is a unique country in many ways. Geographically speaking, its landmass will fit Europe in quite easily and it is larger than the Lower 48 States of the USA.

Roughly halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, at the junction of the Sturt and Newell Highways in New South Wales, you’ll find Narrandera Shire, an agricultural town rich with more than crops and wool production. Fuelled by the Murrumbidgee River, the region is made even more charming with its tree-lined streets and heritage buildings.

A number of the townships within the Mitchell Shire are innocently, if not ignorantly, deemed as places deserving of nothing more than a brief ‘pitstop’ while en route to Sydney. But the recent experience of a short sojourn to Seymour (just over 100km north of Melbourne) and its surrounds tells me unequivocally that anyone who adopts a ‘blink-and-you-miss-it’ mentality on this region is forgoing an exciting and fascinating travel treat.

The Mid West coast of Western Australia is full of colour, grand sweeping landscapes and wonderful people. It’s a destination where you’ll definitely want to linger longer.

The beaches here, so isolated they are nesting havens for rare birds, have to be some of the best kept secrets in coastal camping in the country. While the region once relied so heavily on the fishing industry and mining, tourism is now its much-needed economic mainstay.
