All aboard for Peterborough – toot toot!

After our wet start in Broken Hill, we proceeded to Peterborough where we spent 2 nights at the Peterborough Caravan Park. The girls were happy as there was a pretty little park with a big playground next door and heaps of space to finally get the bikes off the bike rack for their first ride around.

An historic town, we checked out the train museum which paid homage to the significant rail history as Peterborough (or Petersburg as it was known when it was first established) was a transport hub connecting Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne.

Peterborough is now a crossroads which connect travellers to four highways leading in different directions – Broken Hill, Port Augusta, Port Pirie and Adelaide, and features some of the best entrance signs to their town that we’ve seen!

A little bushwalk to the top of the Greg Duggan’s Reserve which looks out over  Peterborough started our last day there and the girls were enthralled with the blossoming wattle.


To kill some time we headed to a local café and grabbed a coffee and took the girls to the town centre playground. Our coffees (which weren’t so great) were a whopping $5.75 each for a regular sized cup!!!

We finished up our time and in preparation I whipped up a batch of jam drops – thanks Thermomix, I knew you’d come in handy!


Have you ever been to Peterborough? Do you have any other good snack recipes I can whip up in my Thermomix?
