We didn't have to catch our plane until 1.30pm so we finally did some sight seeing.  We decided to go to the Telegraph Station which was the first white settlement in Central Australia

Alice Springs obtained its name from the waterhole at this historic Telegraph Station.

The Telegraph Station features the original buildings of stone which have been restored with house furnishings and artefacts from the early 1900s.

On our way to the airport we stopped at Anzac Hill. From here you get a 360 degree view of Alice Springs

After an uneventful flight and a stopover in Sydney we arrived in Brisbane at 8.30.  An hour drive to Caloundra to pick up the truck so Tony could go to work the next day we got home at 10pm, the girls had given up waiting for us and were in bed asleep.  We had a fantastic trip and am hoping to go again next year.
