We travel half way around the world every year to visit and stay at our house on the South East coast.
Everything is fine until we get to Melbourne and then the dilema is – how do we get to Mount Gambier.
Rex is a disgusting monopoly.
So the alternative is to rent a car one way at $au600 for the day.
The South East of South Australia is a truly beautiful place, comparable to anywhere in the world, you just have to be able to get there, and Rex isn’t the way.
