The Olgas

We did a 50km drive out to the Olgas which are within the Katatjuta National Park. Onn the drive out we saw wild camels again. Not many people realise that there are approximately 1,000,000 camels roaming free in central and northern Australia. They were brought over by the Afghans in the early days to cart produce across the outback. As transport improved they were not need. The Afghans went home but left the camels behind. They shouldn't really have survived but they have thrived to this day. The Olgas at 198 metres high and with their 36 domed heads in many ways they are equally impressive as Uluru. We also did a really good walk through a steep gorge before the heat got the better of us and we returned to a swimming pool for the afternoon.

We treated ourselves to dinner out tonight at the Sandy Desert Hotel. Absolute luxury plus air con! Camping and campervanning doesn't stop you from having a bit of luxury now and again.
