Alice Springs To Boggy Hole, August 2007

Return to Homepage          Return to Outback Homepage

Elli and her grandson Mitchell flew into Alice Springs to see a bit of the Outback on their way back to Tasmania, after a walking trip in China.

It was a bit of a rushed trip, and had long driving days to see as much as we could in the time available. Our route went from Alice Springs along the West McDonnells to see Simpsons Gap, Standley Chasm, and camped at Orminston Gorge. Then back round to Hermannsburg, into Palm Valley for the night, then down the Finke River bed to camp at Boggy Hole.
