Day 7 – Alice Springs to Tennant Creek

Interesting drive up from Alice Springs. We stopped Aileron to see the giant the Anmatjere Man but was treated with another giant sculpture the Anmatjere Woman and Child both created by artist Mark Egan.

We later stopped at Australia’s very own UFO center at Wycliffe Well. Very interesting artwork and news articles.

Our last stop before Tennant Creek is Karlu Karlu / Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve. Kiam and Dianne showed off their supernatural skills acquired after the alien encounter. We will leave the pictures to tell the story. Tomorrow we head to Mataranka – another long drive.

Day 6 – Alice Springs

This is our day of rest at Alice Springs. We spend the day at the beautiful and majestic Tjoritja / West MacDonnell Ranges relaxing in the gorges. This area is also home to the Larapinta Trail for walkers. Pity we only had a day there as it would require a few days to really enjoy this area.

Day 5 – Marla to Alice Springs

We finally cross the border of South Australia and Northern Territory. The landscape is changing to a deeper red. We stopped at the last and first NT pub – the Kulgera Roadhouse with hats dangling on the ceiling, snake skin wrapped around a pillar and a poo poo corner.
