Still on the journey to Kowalka in May 1949, Stan and his Polish friends caught a coastal steamer called the MV Minnipa which took them across the Gulf to Port Lincoln to catch a train to take them to a place called Minnipa! This is the story of their journey across South Australia towards their ultimate destination at Kowulka near Penong.

MV Minnipa one of 3 ships sailing between Adelaide and Port Lincoln calling at other places on the way. This was the easiest way to get from Adelaide to Port Lincoln.
