Now that's what I call a great trip.
None of this Bali/Thailand stuff.
You didn't run into a bloke with a white beard ????
Sorry, no you wouldn't, because he was at "nude up's" secret creek.
In saying that, you can travel 4,000 miles & run into "the bloke next door".

Love the photos too

Thanks Guys!
I shall chuck up some more pictures for all of you to see!
We were in a big group. 4 people a car. 3 cars from Melbourne.

Understandably, packing was kept to a minimum.

Clothes , Tackle and the rod case!

We left Melbourne and reached Glendambo, SA for the sunrise.
We were in 2 Prado's and a spirited Nissan Pathfinder that kept up fairly well with the bigger cars.

Driving through the dessert , the roads were a bright Red. Im attributing that to a higher latterite content. Made for a very visually appealing drive.

We finally reached Coober Pedy , Stopping off for some R&R.

We stayed overnight in a renovated opal mine shaft.

A few beers were had under a very starry night sky. The milky way could be seen very clearly and we had some fun trying to spot constellations.


We set off the next morning , fresh as a fiddle and heading straight to NT. The next stop would be tennants creek.



We did have a it of fun on the way though, we had to pass through the Outback Autobahn. Needless to say, it was a surreal feeling flying though the desert at speeds well over anything ive ever done on the M1

A plane flying into Alice Springs as we drove through town.

We finally crossed over the border.

We stayed over night at Tennants Creek Caravan Park . Good , clean and inexpensive!
Quick shower in the morning and we headed off to Darwin.

On the way we simply had to stop for a morning beer at the famous Daly Waters Pub.

The crystal clear pools at Mataranka were impressive. Thousands of fruit bats flying over head. The kids had a blast !

We then reached Darwin. Stayed overnight , took a walk around town and headed to Kakadu.

Then I got into them Saratoga!
There is always more to learn , fish to catch , places to see and friends to make.

Nice report mate sounds like you had a great trip :a_goodjob:
Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:
