      The Barkly and Flinder’s Highways

      On May 23 we headed for Mataranka first thing in the morning. We had an amazingly perfect swim in the warm water under the ring of palm trees and beautiful […]

      Kakadu National Park

      We got into Darwin on May 20. We were surprised by how small and how touristy it was for one of Australia’s top cities. But then again, nothing here in […]

      Litchfield National Park

      We weren’t sure how long we would spend in Litchfield National Park on May 19, looking at the termite mounds that are so “famous”, but the park turned out to […]

      We made it about 100km away from Uluru after watching the sunset before settling for the night in the relative luxury of a rest stop that had 1) a water […]

      Adelaide to Coober Pedy

      May 11-12 It was only a little over 300km from Adelaide to Port Augusta, the last stop before the outback, but we didn’t make it there on Mother’s Day. We […]
