Milang, South Australia – A Day by the Water

We spent a wonderful day with friends at Milang, South Australia before the 2013 New Year.

Had never been there before, and it was rather impressive to see how large Lake Alexandria is – it was like looking out at the ocean. A great spot to visit for the afternoon, have a picnic and relax by the water. Don’t forget your sunscreen though. The sun in Australia is rather harsh, and a cool breeze on the day made the sun seem not so bad – until we got home and realised how badly burnt my partner was.

The great thing about Milang is it’s only an hour drive from Adelaide!
