Hear the story behind the formation of these gigantic boulders before continuing on to Tennant Creek for lunch. In the evening visit a true blue Aussie pub, perhaps sharing a couple of beers with the friendly locals before camping out beneath the stars for an evening of peaceful outback solitude.
Start the day with an exploration of Nitmiluk National Park. Meaning the 'Place of the Cicada Dreaming' in the Jawoyn language, it’s a stunning place to explore.
