Kings Creek Station, NT, Australia


Kings Creek Station – Otherwise known as our final destination of our Groovy Grape trip. Here we slept in our swags for the final time… sad times!! I was in the company of many a creature… horses, dogs, lizards and camels to name a few! An amazing place :).

29/11 – ‘4.45am wakeup call!! We got up way too early for my liking as we had a fairly lengthy journey to Kata Tjuta. We arrived just in time to watch the sunrise and take many photos. Me and Lesley… as usual we laughed ourselves to death over us taking photos – the photograph says it all!!

We then had yummy pancakes for breakfast looking over Kata Tjuta – amazing :).

After breaky, we then headed off to start our trek through Kata Tjuta. The walk is called Valley Of The Winds, at a total of 7.4km.

This walk was amazing. A lot more hilly than Uluru, but the views we got were well worth the climb. Took lots of photos again! And I laughed lots more with Lesley, this girl is infectious!! I made sure I drank plenty of water today; I didn’t want a repeat of yesterday! This however meant that by the middle of the walk, my bladder was near bursting point!! I’d much rather that though than go through another day of dehydration!!

After running to the toilets to release myself, we headed back to camp for a burger lunch in the sun. The heat was crazy by this point! And to think some people didn’t start their walk round Kata Tjuta till after lunch, it must have been unbearable!!

After we filled ourselves up it was time to tidy up camp and fill the bus ready to head off to our next destination. I took a few photos of camp, so I wouldn’t forget it… and of course the bus too!!

We drove just over three hours to get to Kings Creek Station, our final destination to rest our heads for the week! Unfortunately it would be our last night in our swags :(. After parking the bus at our camp, myself, Linda, Sabine and Jaqamine headed off to ride the camels!

15 minutes of riding the camels was ace fun!! Vicki and Mable were our two camels for today… almost like riding a horse… just a bit stranger I guess?!!

We headed back to camp where we got supper, pasta and garlic bread. As usual we all sat together, this time round the camp fire, chatting away. Myself and Lesley somehow managed to get it in our heads that sitting on our tiny wee stools in the Buddha position would be funny!!

After much chatting and laughing by the fire, we headed off to bed for the last time :(. Tonight was our last night in our swags, so we obviously took photos to remember the moment!!

Had an awesome sleep yet again ready for our last early start to our trip…”
