This afternoon we spent a very hot three and a half hours at Alice Springs Desert Park. There are lots of water bubblers spread throughout the park and I stopped at every one. I think the headache I had this morning was partly from being dehydrated.
The Desert Park walks one through three habitats: desert rivers, sand country and woodland. It's great for seeing and understanding the Northern Territory's plants and animal life.
We had a really good time. I would recommend going on a slightly cooler day. But I remain unconvinced that there are any days like that in the Northern Territory.
