    T6 - Outback

    May 21, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    TENNANT CREEK

    ▪️Am Morgen flogen und krabbelten 100erte Fliegen um uns und auf uns rum - so schrecklich eine richtige Plaque
    ▪️Zum Glück haben wir die Fliegennetze, denn sie krabbelten auch in Nase, Augen und Ohren
    ▪️In dem Ort Tennant Creek gibt es am Lake Mary Ann kostenlose Duschen, die wir genüsslich genutzt haben :)
    ▪️Nach dem Tanken ging es für 4h weiter zum nächsten Rastplatz "Connors Well"
    ▪️Dort lernten wir die Kölner David und Alwin kennen, die in die entgegengesetzte Richtung unterwegs waren

    💡Per Handzeichen wird jeder entgegen kommende Autofahrer gegrüßt. Dadurch bleibt man aufmerksam, da nicht viele im Outback unterwegs sind.

    Tennant Creek

    April 28, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Telstra is king out here and we were fortunate to find a phone boosting tower at our camp. Had to get a shot of Graham using this 21st century version of the ole bush telegraph.
    After leaving Ti-Tree this morning we've made our way along the Stuart highway toward our next camp. This is a road we've done a few times so didn't feel the need to get out and look at everything again. Couldn't help but get in a shot at Barrow Creek Hotel -very 'rustic' and now known as the place Joanne Lees was first taken when found by a truckie not far up the road after her ordeal with Bradley Murdoch. I doubt anyone can now drive this stretch of highway without at least momentarily thinking of Peter Falconio and what happened.
    Wycliffe Wells (alien-sighting capital of Oz?!) is another interesting stop but found it all a bit sad and grubby this time. The fact that nothing had been done to the alien display (or general shelving for that matter) since we were last through here few years ago was a bit off putting. A dust would have been good. 🙁

    So here we sit at the dump point next to sports oval, catching up on fb and emptying our toilet (it's a glamorous life) before moving on to Kunjarra (The Pebbles) - an area the locals kindly allow visitors to camp by. That's enough for one day :)

    Does it boost the signa much?

    Yep it actually works well - enough to get a call Through anyway.

    THE PEBBLES

    June 27, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We had just come from Alice Springs where we had "cleaned" our car and camper when we came to the turn off to The Pebbles and realised it was a dirt road. The Pebbles are just like a mini Devils Marbles. We only stayed there one night. The sunsets were pretty impressive there.Read more
