Day 20-21 - Kings Canyon, Hermannsburg, Alice Springs


This morning we started a fire because of the cold wind. When the sun and the fire had warmed us up, we drove down to the Kings Canyon Rim Walk to see the amazing views of Kings canyon. We walked right on the edge of the tall cliffs and up steep hills but it was definitely worth the tough walk! We soon got hungry from the steep hills so we found a nice spot in the shade with a good view and started on some lunch. After some lunch we carried on with the rest of the walk. After the walk we drove on a very very rough road. The road had big stones, bumpy corrugations and very big, unexpected dips and there was one dip (which we didn't see until we went right into it) that bumped lots of things around in the caravan including the toilet paper roll, which rolled around everywhere causing a big mess! After the very very bumpy road we arrived at Hermannsberg where we watched the frustrating State Of Origin Game 2. After the siren had sounded we went to bed😩  


The next morning we walked up to a bakery where we had scones with jam and cream, a scoop of ice cream and German strudel because 150 years ago some Germans started the town, and since strudel is a German treat the bakery has been selling it ever since then. When we had finished our delicious treats, we drove to Alice Springs. We found this really cool BIG 4 caravan park (a really good campsite company) in Alice Springs that had a playground, trampoline, jumping pillow, another playground, 2 heated pools, a spa and a waterslide❗️So straight away we started jumping on the jumping pillow then swimming in the pool and the waterslide. When it was getting close to dinner time we hopped,out of the pool and had our last jumps on the jumping pillow for the day and headed back to our caravan for some dinner.
