Conde Nast Traveller Magazine Story
I meet up with Tom Huth - writer from Conde Nast USA and Len and Dianne - photographers from New York. The aim is to travel north from Broken Hill into the Simpson Desert to Birdsville , then around Lake Eyre to Coober Pedy and finish in Alice Springs.
The story we are doing will focus on outback pubs, characters and landscapes.
Landrover Australia provided us with a near new Discovery to do the trip.
5,000 klms later -- not even a flat tyre - faultless performance!
We did not count on rain in the desert - this made the trip all the more memorable!!
Conde Nast Traveller magazine will publish the story in the near future.
Inaugural Ghan to the Never Never Journey
We retraced the epic journey of Jeannie Gunn who travelled from Melbourne to Darwin - then south bound to Elsey Station by train, horse and buggy and sometimes on foot, over a century ago. Her story is well recorded in her classic tome - 'We of the Never Never.'
We met the Aboriginal land owners of Elsey Station, swam in clear springs , witnessed the Wet Season at it's best - and stayed in classic bush accommodation.
Due to the overwhelming response - the trip will be run again in 2008.
See some photos of the journey below...
