Saturday 24. 05. 14 Arrived here at 1.30 Thursday morning due to a flight cancellation. Went snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef yesterday and went on a trip through the rainforest today. Both wonderful and exotic.

En route

Thursday 22. 05. 14 Started the day at the theatre seeing a performance based on the aboriginal legend of the eagle, the crow and the cockatoo. It was a combination of live theatre, video and animation. A very creative interpretation. Got to airport only to discover that flight had been cancelled and that we had to fly to Alice and then on to Cairns with a 5 hour layover in Alice! The plus is that we get a free dinner courtesy of Qantas!

Alice

Monday 19. 05. 14 Flew into Alice Springs this morning. Feels like a frontier town – new, brash and somewhat lacking in character. Up early tomorrow to head out to Ayer’s Rock.
