Some places we've been and some places we're going.

I think I phoned 5 Alice Caravan Parks and none had any vacancies so we tried Kings Creek Station and after some wrangling they were able to offer us an unpowered site for two nights. There was a lot of traffic coming towards Kulgera, much less going our way. The scenery changed often from Savannah Woodland to Desert Oak “forests’ and completely flat to a rugged Range with scalloped edges. Flocks of Budgies were swooping and twisting all around is and it was nerve wracking waiting for one to be hit by the car. Other little birds sat on the road expecting cars to get back where they came from. When we arrived at Kings Creek Station we were able to get a third night because one booking only needed site for swags.

Our site is lovely and very convenient to a shelter with tables, benches, BBQ and sinks and the amenities are quite close. We’re happy to be here for three nights even though we’re limited in places we can go with Fergus. We can take him to the carparks at Kings Canyon and Uluru but not on the walks because they’re National Parks. Another camper has offered to dogsit in the afternoon but it would probably take us about an hour to get to the Canyon so we don’t think that leaves us enough time to walk The Rim or very far at all. We might drive to Uluru and have a look around.

All the talk around the place is about the border closures and the difficulties people are facing continuing their trips and also facing quarantine on returning home. We’re relaxed about it, we’ll see how things stand when we need to move on from here. If we have to return home to quarantine we’ll be ordering food home deliveries and Alex will be fixing the silicone around our kitchen sink. That should keep him busy for two weeks and distract him from pining for a round of golf! 🙂

  1. Glad you are relaxed about border closures and enjoying your holiday. As usual your pics are fantastic.

  2. Glad you acquired a good campsite at last. The talk is ridiculously centred on lockdowns here too. Crows & Port were jetted out this afternoon for Melbourne. I’m seeing your photos on a smartphone so I I look forward to getting to a library! Thanks for the progress reports & photos.
