    Up at 6.45 to get to the airport at Alice Springs for 10.10 Virgin Australia flight to Adelaide instead of The Ghan. The airport is about 10 miles out of town. We are nearly there when I realise we forgot to fill up before returning the hire car at the airport. Its too far to go back so just have to pray there is a petrol station at the airport - there isn't. Oh well. We'll just have to pay the exorbitant price Hertz will charge to fill it. Its a small airport so check in ...

It is these rocks the Aboriginals grind up to make dyes for painting. We are only allowed to a lookout not into the pits.
    We get to Redbank gorge and find a 5km dirt road in ...

    Next I headed to Anzac Hill Lookout above town for its great views. Then I had to hoof it back down to the mall to Lone Dingo gear shop for the Larapinta group briefing. Both Josie and I were a bit surprised and disappointed to see that it was a group of 16, which was bigger than expected, but we crossed our fingers all the people would be good fun. We packed our gear and had an early dinner before heading to bed early, ready for a big and exciting day ahead.

    Next to the gallery is the Museum of Central Australia which has a display on the work of Prof TGH Strehlow - born at the Hermannsburg mission west of Alice Springs and fluent in the Arrente language. He amassed an amazing collection of artefacts, film recordings and written songs of the aboriginals of the area. The collection is steeped in controversy, especially the powerful tjuringa bestowed upon him by ...
