    T7 - Outback

    May 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C


    ▪️Frühstücken ist total überbewertet bei den ganzen Fliegen 😅
    ▪️Während der Fahrt wird dies nun erledigt und beim nächsten Rastplatz werden fix die Zähne geputzt :)
    ▪️Nachdem wir in Alice Springs unsere Vorräte aufgestockt haben, ging es weiter Richtung Uluru - Kata Tjuta Nationalpark
    ▪️Kurz vor unserem Free Camp sahen wir ihn plötzlich am Horizont, angestrahlt von der untergehenden Sonne, der Uluru (Ayers Rock)
    ▪️Ich war total hypnotisiert von diesem mächtigen, roten Felsen - Australiens 2. Wahrzeichen nach dem Opernhaus in Sydney
    ▪️Nach einigen Recherchen stellte sich jedoch heraus, es war der Mount Conner 😅 - ein Tafelberg in Australien

    Curtin Springs

    April 22, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    One of the desert oasis’s that you come across in these remote areas. This place had its own “earthy” character and no fuss approach.
    Motel facilities as well as a desert grass roof thatch that is apparently called a “bough thatch” which was very common in this part of the world in the mid to early part of last century. This particular structure was very solid and had a drip watering system to keep the area cool and damp.
    Their were also an array of aviaries outback that housed a variety of bird life. Parrots, cockatiels and budgerigars are very common in this part of Central Australia.
    Almost all of these locations have their own bore water holes which allows them to maintain gardens and lush green lawns which in this arid environment are so inviting.
    Interestingly, there seem to be lots of Asian store keepers and proprietors in this area which was a surprise to me as I assumed that the desert lifestyle would not appeal to them however one of the most stable sources of income in the area are these remote general stores.
