We have made it to the Northern Territory. It’s a first for 3 of us. We love the colours – these incredible blue skies, the vivid oranges and reds and the bush greens – thanks to some fairly recent rains.
From Cloncurry to Alice Springs is about 1200kms and our biggest drive was Cloncurry to Barkly Homestead. We were scrambling over ourselves to get out of the car to take pictures at the border. Any excuse would have done!
We camped at Barkly Homestead, the only rest stop before you turn left at Three Ways. We ran about, swam, learned to tie knots, checked out the plane Matt used to fly and climbed trees – all in about 1 hour before ordering tea at the roadhouse.
And on to Alice….
