June 2014 – Kulcurna Station

Beaut lunch at Kulcurna Station, currently owned by the Hansens. Goat stew, golden syrup dumpling, river gums, the red cliffs of the Murray River.  Back in the day, one of the homestead owners developed drought resistant strains of wheat and put crops in the bed of the river during times of drought (Hansen 2010, Postcards SA). Sadly my camera died so no photos but you can check out Kulcurna’s blog or their photo  gallery or a Kulcurna postcard or sunphio’s Kulcurna flickr album

    Okay, I’ll bite – what is a Golden Syrup Dumpling? (I do know what Lyle’s Golden Syrup is…) And the goat stew – thumbs up or down?

    Pretty simple hearty fare.I’m quite partial to goat and after a cold blustery day the stew was just what was needed. There was also a soup – I went back for seconds so it must have been good.

    Yes, pretty much the same as Lyle’s. The typical brand in Australia is CSR (http://www.csrsugar.com.au/Syrups/Original-Golden-Syrup.aspx).
