Mark Moxon's Travel Writing

Australia: The Coorong

On Sunday I left Kingston SE1, passing the 30 ft model of Larry the Lobster on the way out, and headed north to a little coastal town called Port Elliot, via the Coorong.

1 I never found out what the SE stood for when I was in Australia, but Cassie Blatchford emailed me to say, 'In South Australia there are two towns called Kingston. To distinguish between the two, one is called Kingston SE (because it's in the southeast of South Australia), and the other one, a little town on the Murray River, is called Kingston on Murray.' Thanks Cassie – that's another mystery cleared up!
