My Trip through the Outback

by Melanie
(Toronto, Canada)

Over Easter of 1995 I did a 8 day camping tour from Darwin to Alice Springs. I was there on University exchange and this was part of my holidays. I did an 18-35 tour and it was one of the highlights of my time in Oz.

My favorite parts of the tour were the cruise through the Katherine Gorge, and camping under the stars.

The highlight however was staying with a community of Aboriginal people one night. We had a traditional dinner with a family and sat around the fire for story time. As we sat with the kids and listened to the dad tell the stories and play the didgeridoo - it was magical and I will always remember the magic of that night.

After dinner we slept under the stars replaying the stories in our heads.

It was incredible!
