We spent two weeks exploring Australia’s Red Centre. It was a fantastic adventure full of red dirt, flies, open campgrounds and some intense desert hikes.
Dylan narrates this video of our time in ‘The Red Centre’.
Crossing the border into the Northern Territory saw us enter our 5th state on our travels of as many months.
We immediately found ourselves relax into the ‘outback’ atmosphere:
Hot days. Absolutely S T U N N I N G sunsets - and we found ourselves a decent amount of both low and no cost camping spots during our trip thanks to our wikicamps app.
Our first camp was in amongst the red dirt, shrubs and flies of the NT border. It is where our first dent on the outside of the caravan occurred thanks to a decent sized tree branch falling against the raptor spray skirting our van. (Yes…. a ‘small’ argument followed this event ).
It’s also where we experienced our first afternoon of the flies keeping us hostage inside our van - as they don’t share the outdoors too well in these parts!
Dylan shares his recap of our adventures in the video above - including:
Avoiding the Emu’s scary beaks at Erlduna Roadhouse; Falling victim to Mt Connor’s trickery;
Freezing our butts off at The Olgas; Trekking around Uluru and Kings Canyon; and the stress of being a passenger on The Ernest Giles Track out to Henbury Meteorite!
We hope you enjoy our highlight reel!
