Tuesday 12th July
Left what I think was our most picturesque camp – Agnes Creek Rest Area this morning. We arrived at the border an hour or so later and was stopped by police to inspect our passes ( all ok). Onwards northward to the famous Eridunda Road house. After queuing for fuel ( $2.02 per litre) we took the Lassester highway to the left or West. Our aim was to camp around 150 k before Uluru but as we were making good time we made the call to keep going and arrived at the Alice Springs camp ground a day earlier than planned. We then had to wait about 2 hours to register to stay in the overflow area until our official sites were available tomorrow. We were able to see Uluru from a distance today but tomorrow will provide us time for a close up.
