The Ghan Train Museum.

Location

Old Ghan Museum and Tearooms, 2 Norris Bell Ave, Arumbera NT 0873, Australia

Info

A museum about the rail line from Port Augusta to Alice Springs it construction and life. Lots of stuff to read about and look at. Does not seem to have much maintenance being done to keep it in good condition. Probably rin down in another 10 years. We were going to go to the Kenworth Truck Hall of Fame as well but it was another $50.00 and it has 11 rooms to view with an estimated 4-5 hours to view. Even a quick visit may be more time than we have. Heading back to caravan fir a brief respite before getting ready for tomorrows departure.

Leaving Alice Springs - Day 21.

Location

BIG4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park, 25 Palm Pl, Ross NT 0870, Australia

Info

The MacDonnell Ranges BIG4 was a tad expensive but would have to the best we have stayed at in our limited travels. It is a large park with lots of room for turning & parking. The layout is well thought out and has a great camp kitchen. The facilities for kids are great. Even a wash down area for bikes. Quick stop off at Bunnings for some firewood. Cheap & nasty. 😖😖😖 Wow look at all the caravans parked out the front. Top up the fuel and we are off.

Rest Stop for Lunch.

Location

Central Mount Stuart Historical Reserve, 29090 Stuart Hwy, Anmatjere NT 0872, Australia

Info

Time for a P break and a bite to eat. Went through Ti-Tree to a rest stop 10kms out of town. There was supposed to be a fruit fly station there. Did not see it. Checked the wood. All looks good. Well looks like a lunch stop now. All fed and now the kids are having a race around the caravan and car. Weird!! 🙄🙄🙄 Heading for The Devil's Marbles for tonight. I don't think we will make Tennant Creek for tonight.

Up Early for Some Photos.

Location

Devils Marbles Conservation Reserve, Stuart Hwy, Davenport NT 0872, Australia

Info

No takers this morning either. Watched the sun come up over the Devil's Marbles. No one else up that I noticed. Had chat to a neighbour for too long. 🙄🙄🙄 Everyone has stories. You can spend hours talking. The native birds move in to clean up after each caravan leaves. Nearly 9:00am and still waiting. Aiming for 9:00am I hope. ðŸĪŠðŸĪŠðŸĪŠ
