Erldinda Roadhouse.

Location

Erldunda Roadhouse, Stuart Hwy & Lasseter Hwy, Erldunda NT 0872, Australia

Info

DAY 15: Centre Of The Centre. Quite a busy place. Has an Emu Farm, Caravan Park, Bar, Food etc etc. Tried for a site for the caravan for the night. Not powered sites only unpowered for $40.00 per night. Decided to go up the road for a free camp instead. Grabbed 40 litres to make Alice Springs assuming fuel will be cheaper there. We'll see I guess. 🤙🤙🤙 Aidyn & Taleah fed the emus at the Emu Farm. They really are weird birds.

Desert Oaks Rest Area.

Info

Designated Rest Stop with drop toilets. A few travellers already setup for the overnighter. A few triples have rumbled by. It could be a noisy night compared to previous nights. The speed limit on this road is 130 kph and the cars that travel at that speed are definitely noiser. Taleah decided to practice cartwheels and the splits in the red dirt before dinner. 🤯🤯🤯 Her penalty was having to have sponge bath outside before being allowed in the caravan & after everything else was washed and done. It was a tad chilly by then. 😬😬😬 Finished dinner and all cleaned up and ready for bed by 8:00pm. Maybe we will get an early start in the morning. Only 12°c outside at the moment, so it may not be so cold as normal in the morning.

We have joined the que to get in. Looks like lots of things to see in Alice. May he to stay a bit longer. 🤔🤔🤔 We will be staying until Sunday morning now. 🤗🤗🤗 Went into town for supplies. Appeared to be very busy in town. Lots of locals and tourists. Reminded me a little of Broome with a touch of Fremantle but much much bigger. Our neighbours were from England travelling around the world and two brother with wives in a caravans travelling north. they had just come across The Great Central as well. Had dinner and the park has a kios that sells sweets. So we are off for a mouse or pavlova. 😛😛😛
