We packed up and said good bye to Uluru in the rain and drove 6 hours to Alice Springs.
Low cloud and the occasional bit of drizzle the first 2 days here so we walked and rode our bikes around the town, went to the Reptile Park and held a Blue Tongue lizard, Breaded Dragon, Frank the Spencer monitor and the highlight an Olive Python – cool!
Had a BBQ dinner with Mark, Annie and their family and friends, Mark and his brothers are old school friends of Mike and they hadn’t seen each other for 20 years. It was a fun night with lots laughs and reminiscing. It was great meeting you, thanks for the wonderful welcome and we look forward to seeing you in Adelaide.
With the sun now shining we walked the Botanical Gardens and lookouts, spent a day at the Desert Park which had a great bird show. Then of course the MacDonnell Ranges, definite wow factor, this is where the locals come to swim at few of the many incredible water holes hidden amongst the ranges. This place is worth more of our time but we are ready to get to warmer weather, where we can actually swim in the water holes. The sun maybe shining but its freezing here!
