Back to our South Australian trip. We left Hahndorf for Adelaide where a new adventure awaited us. More about that in a later post. We were driving through the Adelaide Hills looking for the little towns of Gumeracha and Birdwood. After doing a cha cha around the roads and getting lost we eventually found The Big Rocking Horse at Gumeracha. You can climb up stairs inside it to a lookout on its back.
It is a bit kitch but they have a wonderful toy shop here. The weather was not the best, cold and showery.
We all had fun wandering around the toy factory. They have the most beautiful wooden toys. We wanted to buy Fox a present but these were too big to send to LA. However we did find him a smaller train, which also cost heaps to post to USA.
This is to give an idea of the size.
There was also an animal enclosure here. A wallaby, a small species of kangaroo.
Lyre Bird I mean a Peacock.

Then we were back in the car with our friends and off to Birdwood to find "The National Motor Museum". It is very pretty driving through the Adelaide Hills.
