Well, Coober Pedy was no prettier in the morning light. It was certainly cooler though, so I took the oportunity to stroll around, and had a look at the various Opal shops after I found some breakfast.

I started the long drive to the NT and Ayres Rock. Even the SA to NT border crossing was a small affair marked by a small sign. The landscape remained endless red sand dunes, salt bush and desert oak, for hours.

One interesting change as I crossed into NT was that the landscape was dotted hear and there with outcrops of rock. You can see how boring my drive was, clearly, if a few rocks was a highlight!.

I got in to Yulara at around 4pm NT time (5pm SA time). On the road into the resort, I caught climpses of what I slowly realised to be 'it'. Its HUGE.

I set up my tent in a hurry, and dashed off to the NP to have a quick poke around. I drove the circuit loop, and watched the sunset at the sunset viewing area, Delightful.
