Adventures in the Outback
Carrie, Julius, Michele and Glenn - the four intreped travelers at Uluru.
Four Days, Three Nights Camping in the Outback
Our second stop was at the magnificent Serpentine Gorge.
At another stop we spent some time exploring the ochre pits.
The aboriginal people used the ochre here for medicine and decoration.
Glen Helen Resort
We ate our packed lunch outside and wandered down to the river where we saw a beautiful white-faced blue heron.
We made one final stop at Gosse Bluff to see the remains of an ancient impact crater.
Then it was on to Kings Canyon!
Pulling in late and after dark, we barely made it to the only place to eat at King’s Creek Station before they closed up for the night. Our burgers and potato wedges were the last orders of the day. Enjoyed eating at the communal campground tables within the screened-in porch area.
We set up our tents in the dark on the “lawn” as opposed to a specified campsite. Our tent door faced Julius and Carrie’s, making it easy to call out our “Good Nights” and “Good Mornings” from our two-feet high air mattress they had bought for our comfort. Now, we are spoiled!
