Sun 17th & Mon 18th
Halls Creek - Derby - Horizontal Falls & Bush Camp
Traveled hard Sunday. Arrive in Derby about 2.30pm. Tried to use
Booking .com to find a motel got one paid via credit card then tried
to find it via their map - oops its booked in England so then spent
an hour trying to cancel it and lost all my free time to explore the
town that looked quite interesting - really annoyed. Caravan
parks were all full but found a pub motel, easy after all, and a
cold beer (AU$7) that went down well. Seems the gray nomads
stay in their caravans according to the publican who had only about
4 of 40 units occupied.
Sleep in and cooled down then then off to the airport to meet the
falls tour. Back at 3 then on the road for 2 hours and camping free
in the bush. Quite nice again.
