    Cairns and the Rainforest

    December 21, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    After we got our outback feeling 🏜- we return the 4WD and fly from Alice Springs to Cairns. the colours are changing from red to very green and a loooot of plants 🌱. Temperature seems more moderate with 36 degrees, but this humidity..... 🥵

    Here we pick up a slightly bigger camper 😄 and first, heading North towards Port Douglas and Daintree Rainforest - the oldest Rainforest in the world. Dinosaurs lived here once....

    We nearly stand on a snake 🐍 15cm saved us...
    Maybe you find the snake on one of the pictures...

    We also visit Hartley‘s Crocodile show 🐊 and Cairns Aquarium where sharks are fed by scuba divers... 🦈

    Meereenie Loop and Ormiston Gorge

    December 20, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    On the way to Alice Springs we take the famous „Mereenie Loop“. An unsealed road - very bumpy - but with a 4WD and a speed over 80-100km/h it is more or less comfortable. On the way we meet some wild horses 🐎

    Overnight we stay at Ormiston Gorge where we do the 4 hours walk in the very early morning - however, temperature around 40 degrees at 8 o‘clock in the morning was a good challenge 😅🏜 after the walk we jump in the rock pool 🏊🏻‍♀️ to cool down... aaahhh!

    King's Canyon

    December 19, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    After blending Uluru we decided to head North towards King‘s Canyon. A 3 hours drive took us to the entrance of this National Park...

    And we can say - it was one of our favourite walks through a rocky landscape... together with the sunrise - wonderful 🌅Read more

    Uluru / Ayer's Rock

    December 18, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 39 °C

    After driving through the total outback - we arrived at the Red Center... The Uluru-Kata-Tjuta Nationalpark 🏞

    Many people may say: It‘s just a rock...

    But... we loved the atmosphere, the hot temperatures above 44 degrees (around 50 close to the rock), and were stunned by the more green than red coloured Red Center...
    It is not allowed to take pictures from everywhere in order to respect the Aboriginees... but we could take a few and can say:

    Definitely worth the trip! 😄 🏜

    Coober Pedy and the total Outback...

    December 16, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    It‘s getting hot (44+ degrees 🥵) - we‘re amazingly alone - just some snakes 🐍 and a loooot of slightly annoying flies..

    Good we have a 4WD to conquer the rough roads...! 🚙
    However, it‘s easier and smoother to speed over the dirt roads with more than 80km/h than slowly crawling...

    The next day we need to drive more than 800km’s to „Uluru“ - as the lovely Aboriginal Girl says: „Uluru - that‘s for me just down the road“... and for us just on the opposite of Europe!

    Funny fact: so far - we saved the life of 2 birds 🦅, 3 reptiles 🦎 and 1 kangoroo 🦘 with stunning driving abilities... 😲

    On the road into the Australian Outback

    December 15, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We‘re hitting the road from Adelaide to the Ayers Rock („Uluru“) and to Alice Springs through the Australian outback...our servant is the 4WD campervan from Apollo 🚐 the next days - there will be nothing but desert.. 🏜

    We carry a lot of food, extra water and extra diesel in these days... for emergencies (car breakdown, snake bite 🐍 etc) we have a gps activated device where an airplane should find and rescue us... fingers crossed 🤞🏼 no need to use it!

    Starting with sunrise... let‘s a goo! 🌅
