On the Road to Auburn

After some excitement at that critical intersection, the journey was uneventful except for a slight incident that involved alternative routes through and around Gawler and some road-works where the alternatives reunited.

Since we were just inside the limits of the street directory, we were able to backtrack without much trouble.

Auburn is located at the southern end of the Clare Valley  

We arrived there about eleven-thirty and found our base for the next three nights without much trouble. We found the proprietress on site, which led to a guided tour of the facilities along and advice about the neighbourhood.

Working on the principle that Melbourne Cup Day might see places open 363 days a year (with Christmas and Good Friday being the exceptions) involved in some race-related function we started off with a stroll around Auburn, passing a Cup function which might have attracted a number of the local proprietors.
