We're staying for two nights at Uluru, so we can get some major cultural experiences. On the first night, we're doing the Sounds of Silence experience. Then early the next morning we're doing the Sunrise and Base Walk.
On Saturday a coach will return us the 400 km to Alice Springs, where we stay the night. On the Sunday we will board the next Ghan and travel to Katherine. After a few hours to do some tourist stuff, it's back on the Ghan to Darwin.
We arrive in Darwin on the Tuesday, mid afternoon.
Our kids fly in from Sydney on Wednesday.
On Thursday we hope to go the Mindel Markets.
On Friday Merv is hoping to take the kids Reef Fishing.
Then hopefully on Saturday it will be a ride down the Adelaide River, doing a Jumping Crocodile Cruise.
Late Saturday night, some more friends arrive and Sunday will probably be a rest day with maybe a visit to some markets.
Our kids fly back to Sydney at 1.40 am on Monday morning ... very early, but it means they're back home in time to go to work.
The rest of our time will be spent chilling with friends, visiting markets, eating out and for my hubby to do as much fishing as he can. My hubby and a friend are planning a barramundi fishing adventure on the Daly River. They will have a guide with them, so here's to it being a load of fun.
We haven't bought return tickets, but expect to fly back after about a three week break.
