‘I’ve found some chicken!’ exclaimed Clement, holding up the plastic bag he’d found in the rubbish bin. We dined on that before a second visit resulted in eggs, sausages and bread – all ready for breakfast tomorrow. Dumpster diving in Yulara.

I had already reached 39000km before even leaving the carpark – so – the required selfie.

Camping next to Kata Tjuta, we were the first to enter the Valley of the Winds, and could pass through in total silence, admiring the massive red domes looming above us on all sides. The slopes were covered in green, with huge carpets of purple flowers.

The return to Yulara and civilisation was slow against the headwind we had used as a tailwind the last few days. After a big shopping spree and dumpster diving effort, we headed off into the night to our camping spot – our sunrise viewing spot of yesterday morning.
