Where I stayed
Wilpena Pound Resort
We then hit the road to Silverton - 24 k's away. It is the location of heaps if movies and tv shows. Check it out - www.silverton.org.au - also check out our photos, words can't describe this place. Lots of old buildings, red dirt, ruins and also a pub, cafe/teahouse and several art galleries. Both Silverton and Broken Hill are very arty places with galleries everywhere. We didn't get a chance to go to the Pro Hart gallery - but that is the top of our list if we go back.
After that it was across the red plains and across the boarder into SA
The bird life if awesome out here. We have seen plenty of Magpie-Larks, Swallows, Willie-Wagtails, Crows, Galahs, Sulphur-Crests and these other smallish greenish parrot things. It was a bit sad to see some road kill too.
Finally got to Wilpena Pound at 6pm due to driving at reduced speed to try and reduce consumption. Felt a bit knackered so relaxed for an hour or two before having the most mindblowing hamburger at the restaurant here in the resort.
Now it's off to have a shower and crash because tomorrow we've got lots of fun to be had.
