We drove away from Uluru to Curtin Springs where Mum drove for the first time this trip. We turned off Lasseter Highway and headed north towards the Kings Creek Station. It was a busy caravan park with school holidays in full swing, and they found us a nice private tent site away from other people.
Dad and Christopher drove up the road to find some firewood so we could keep warm. We needed to – it got down to -1° overnight.
Dad made friends with our neighbours, and the man came over and talked to us around the campfire at night. He was from Switzerland and he was in Australia on his honeymoon. He was excited they had travelled 7000kms in their tour around Australia – it was 400kms from one side of his country to the other.
