Centralian Visit 1

We flew out of Cairns heading for Alice Springs. Then we flew back into Cairns. A minor problem but one that could not easily be rectified in the Alice so we were late flying in grabbed a vehicle and groceries for four days and hit the road.
East MacDonnell Ranges are like a geomorphology lesson.

I was heading into the desert to work with the kids from Murputja Anangu School. Their teacher, David Hartland had inspired them with bird watching. This visit was in return for their visiting me in the rainforests and swamps of north Queensland.
A hard day at school. The kids keep records of their sightings and forward those to the Birds Australia Atlas.

As we headed south we were impressed by how green the desert was.
Erldunda was our first night's stop. Frogs were calling loudly from the little waterhole across the road but proved very elusive.
