Northern Territory Road Tripping
Planning a road trip through central Australia, heading up North and inland to the big red rock at Uluru;
We’re mapping our directions and itinerary, Up through Darwin, then Katherine, to see wonderful sights new.
Then we’ll set off to see the picturesque red sands, of our National Park at Kakadu.
Looking forwards to seeing our famous iconic red rock,
as the sun, sets, I’ve heard colours are ever fluctuating, like prisms, as it gets dark.
Taking our route through the Tanami Desert outback,
making sure that the roads are sealed, so, that we don’t get bogged on tracks
Planning what season and month we should be there?
As we go off travelling in July, we’ll take lots of photo’s to share.
I’ve wanted to visit Uluru for over thirty long years,
now we have a caravan to savour and enjoy the journey there.
We didn’t want to fly up on a plane,
We’d miss this diverse landscape and scenic beautiful range.
Not sure how long this journey will take?
It doesn’t matter for us; we have no work commitments to make.
Checking out boarding kennels for our furry girls,
No dogs allowed in These National Parks, those are the rules.
We couldn’t leave them at home, for such a length of time,
when they are with us, that they are just happy and fine.
We’ll meet new indigenous people, to learn more about their culture,
fascinating, awesome, soul enriching,
I love to know more about their ancestral treasures, dances and fortunes.
