Final day of travelling (Sunday 17th January, 2021)… its been the hugest trip as a solo drive…. I take my hat off to the truck drivers of this country, who do these kind of treks every week! Read on…..
Left early for the 915km trek from the backpackers in Alice Springs to Daly Waters….
Stopped at the character-filled, beautifully clean and friendly Barrow Creek Hotel to fill up with fuel and met the lovely Manager and her cat ‘Tiger’, plus the very kind and friendly duo of Bazza and Karina who were assisting with maitenance.
Travelled on to be soon, utterly awestruck, with Devils Marbles rock formations….
Then stopped 10kms past of Tennant Creek town where I found a great picnic spot in Threeways Caravan Park….
“I am asking for only very basic assistance towards the tyre replacement and assist in travel/accommodation costs for the long journey, of driving 3000kms from the bottom (Adelaide) to top (Darwin) of Australia.” If you would like to assist Jaya’s journey, here is the link to her GoFundMe Fundraiser: https://gofund.me/673d78ce
