Here you will be able to see some of our highlights from the N.T
Well we made it across the border!! It was an absolutely monumental moment for all of us, the first time any of us had set foot in the Northern Territory. We spent a good solid amount of time doing the standard “Look I’m in Qld… now I’m in the Territory, now just my arm is in Qld.. etc”! Lots of fun for the kids and indeed all of us. We chatted about all that we were looking forward to and that the Territory has to offer including Uluru, Karlu Karlu (Devils Marbles), Alice Springs, Kakadu, Darwin and everything in between! Before embarking on our journey along the desolate Barkly Highway.
Just over half way across the Barkly highway at the Barkly Homestead Roadhouse we stopped for a cuppa and let the kids cut sick with the camera. They got some beauties, the one of the galahs is a favourite of ours.
Travelling across the Barkly was our first real taste of central Australia where distances of 250+ km in between service stations and network coverage became a reality. Just before we reached the Stuart Highway we came across a beautiful place to set up camp, we felt like it was a special place and was hard not to feel connected to the land out here.
When we made it to the end of the Barkly highway and hit the Stuart highway it was another milestone, we reached another major crossroad of our trip.
This post needs a better overview and in time it will be boss, in essence we have completed our time in the Northern Territory and it was a treat.
