I found it hard to work out why fuel and food was much more expensive at the Kings Canyon Resort
, seeing that they are about equidistant from the Stuart Highway and run by the same operator.
Maybe they reckon that the tourists are richer in Kings.
While the backpackers in Yulara
was good value and fun, I really bridled a bit at the $23 pizza seeing it was only side plate size and fed one.
When we were there in August a dingo was raiding the bins but had apparently sinned by licking the hotplate after the restaurant had closed. Next night at about 1AM someone started blazing away next to our tent with an auto rifle.
With 5 shots in quick succession it was obvious he/she missed with the first.
All in all I left with a bad "ripped off" taste in the mouth.
