Because those that matter...
don't mind...
And those that mind....
don't matter." -

Jimbo got it first, and here’s the descent into Melbourne. Roderick it is Lake Alexandrina. Thanks guys.

This is a truck quiz, so it is unfair to ask for the name of the (former) airfield in the foreground.
The (former) car factory would be fair territory.
My boyhood home occupies two pixels towards the right.
For a truckie, crossing the Nullarbor might be a rite of passage; Gunbarrel might be a rare adventure.
For 4wd: any of those unsurfaced inland roads with no fuel.
For a boatie, crossing Lake Alexandrina is both. We talk about it at gatherings. Boats must meet offshore rules, and carry flares. My first was in my own 9 m cruiser in a fleet. We assembled at Wellington on the preceding evening, then left before dawn in order to clear the channel markers on first light. This would give the calmest crossing: the wind (and waves) usually emerge at lunchtime. This was clear weather, and I was following a leader to avoid heading off course and into shallows. Clearing Point Pomanda, we are into the full open lake, often with both shores not visible. The entry to the narrows has Australia's only inland lighthouse (restored for ceremonial occasions). 4 hours to Point Sturt and safety. I had a perfect crossing. I have crossed twice since by paddlesteamer (PS Marion), which was allowed to take passengers from only 6 years back, and has to meet Solas rules.

I am impressed by that Rodders, no good for me at all because I get motion sickness really bad

But that looks really impressive, thank you

I guess Lake Eyre would be similar when full, not been able to see the shore line when floating in the middle
