Kulgera NT

We moved on passing the Northern Territory Boarder to Kulgera for the night passing Cadney Park where is was very busy with many buying Diesel.
The vegetation was 'salt bush' and as travelling one could see the land flat as far as the eye could see.  This part of the country is called 'The Painted Desert".




The Caravan Park at Kulgera where we had NO power or water.. (we had our own)  One TV Channel and it was Analogue which wasn't a good reception.  No phone reception.  We were all packed in here like sardines.

Kulgera is located in the Northern Territory 275 km south of Alice Springs, 21 km north of the border with South Australia. Kulgera is the southern most permanent settlement in the Northern Territory.



Where you get diesel for the vehicles.




An old sign.


We turned off at Elrduna NT to take the journey to the middle of Australia to see Ayers Rock, (Uluru) Passing Mt. Connor on the way.



Kata Tjuta -Ulgas taken from the platform facing the sun.  Kata Tjuta consists of 36 steep sided monoliths, which, just like Uluru, look most impressive at sunrise and sunet.  There are many walks to be walked in this area of the National Park.




Part of the walk away from the platform at looks over Kata Tjuta.

    1. Always that tinge up north. You never know Rosemary, you may get to see Ayers rock in person.

  8. I love the photo of the old pub sign. It's a treasure. It struck me as funny that in all that great open space the caravans were packed together as if for protection from something.

    1. I reckon that sign has been there a very long time..
      I suppose we all get together where designated sites are for Caravans and such to be all together for the night. When all said and done, we are told and educated not to park/stay in the outback/bush on our own..

  12. It seems funny to be in the outback, the place of wide open space and a big country, and you have to be packed in like sardines on the camp site.
    It is a wondrous place in the red centre especially Uluru and Kata Tjuka.

  13. That's the most tightly packed caravan park I have ever seen!
    Love the old pub sign with no pub in sight!
    I never mistake Mt Connor, it has a flat top, Uluru doesn't.
