His mother lived there until her father died of tuberculosis and my partner was interested to see where she might have lived, et cetera.
We had acquired a map of the mines area from the information centre and stopped the car just past the two churches in the area of Karkarilla Road to consult the map.
A white car pulled up alongside and I could see a female gesticulating so I got out to see what the problem was only to receive a mouthful of abuse about stopping, seemingly in her way.
I said, “Welcome to Moonta,” but before I could apologise she told us to “F*** off back to Victoria!”
We come from Renmark but if this is how tourists are spoken to, we will not be coming back.
