Alice Springs
We made it into Alice Springs and decided to stay a couple days to relax.  Neil flew home back home to Newcastle and that now left Paul and I to continue on our journey. Paul and I had driven over 5,000 kilometers so far since leaving Melbourne.  

Alice Springs was an interesting city; however, there was not much to do within the city limits.  We check in to a small hotel and up entertained ourselves by eating, drinking and sleeping.  

The night life was great with a few bars that stayed open late.  There were plenty of  backpackers and travelers that flocked there.  We meet people from all over the globe and all of us shared some of our travel stories.  

After a couple days we got bored and decided last minute on our next adventure.  We rented the last 4x4 in the city and decided to go out and really see the outback.  There were many sites that was accessible only by 4 wheel drive vehicles.  Now there was nothing to stop us.  


Note:  The rental company furthered confirmed my earlier statement about no one drives at night because of the kangaroos.  In the rental agreement it said that we were not allowed to drive from dusk until dawn.  Any damages from wildlife that occurred during those times would not have been covered.
