Last night was one of the coldest nights I have experienced in our trip , or I can say the coldest night so far. we are on desert area moving to the south. Today we want to reach Alice Springs. It is said that this city is the center of Australia, geographically. The highway we are driving is of a high quality, with a very beautiful landscape on the both sides of the way.Our First stop is Tennant Creek Telgraph station ,which is a historical site 16 Kilometers north of Tennant Creek . The station was built in 1872. If you are interested about the history of this station, you can find more information here.
The next stop is the city where we will have a lunch , then we will drive further to Devils Marbles. There are many blogs and websites explaining about Devils Marbles, so I do not repeat them, But in case of interest you can click here or there.
the next stop is a very small city with population of 11 , according to Wikipedia.We make a short stop here to have a look at its historical Telegraph station. This station is also not very different from other small historical places we have seen on the way.we were supposed to have a look at UFO center as well, but it seems that we passed it some minutes ago and we did not recognize it.
It is around 17:00 and we still have 200 km in front of us to reach Alice Springs, Just now a very strong wind pushed our car to the other side of the road, and I say we are very lucky that there is no other car on the road, otherwise our trip had to end disastrously right now.
It is around 19:00 and we arrive at big 4 McDonnell camping ground in Alice Springs, where there are many Cars and also some buses. This camping place is the most crowded one i have seen in this trip. people come here to go to uluru, where we probably will not have time to visit.
Here is the way we covered today, almost 900 km.
