We spend today visiting several of the attractions in Alice Springs itself, firstly we went to the School of the Air – without a doubt if you are in Alice spring you have to come here – we all really enjoyed it – and where very impressed by the whole operation. We then went and took a look around the old Telegraph Station; they were obviously pretty tough back then!
After lunch in “town”, we visited the RFDS base – where we saw 2 real flights being coordinated and went around a museum showing us how the service has changed since it started. We then visited the Reptile Park which was interesting – but as the day was so hot we didn’t stay long.
This evening there was free didgeridoo demonstration from a guy called Marshall Whyler who was excellent, a terrific way to end another busy but enjoyable day.
