ExplorOz - David & Michelle

Leaving Katherine heading west along the Victoria Highway to Timber Creek the trip was extremely picturesque with large mountain ranges and escarpments of red rock. We arrived in Timber Creek early in the afternoon and explored the fishing spots and lookouts. It was another 40 degree day so we chose to camp at the Timber Creek campground because it had a pool. Under any other circumstances we would have been choosing to stay in more of the free bush camps but the extreme temperatures were nearly killing us and any facilities, no matter how basic, seemed utterly essential.

In preparation of reaching the NT/WA border, we cooked up all our vegies for dinner. I cooked a Thai curry with kumera, potato and mushrooms, coconut cream, lime leaves and loads of chilli.

The evening remained humid, so we camped out under the trees, which was wonderful until we were woken at 6.30am by a helicopter taking off from the adjacent paddock.
