5 Kiwis - 30 Days - The Australian Outback Tour (page 7)

This day kicked off by heading to William Creek to fuel up. An interesting little town with a population of just six
As we were about to head off we had this group pass by which was quite cool. There were about 10 or so of these old cars all up
Our leg took us from William Creek through to Coober Pedy. It was a relatively short riding day today. The plan was to get into Coober Pedy fairly early, sort out a few bits and pieces, fuel up, stock up, shower up and prepare for the next few days of riding
From the research I'd done I was expecting a relatively straight and unentertaining stretch from William Creek through to Coober Pedy but I was wrong once again. It was actually an enjoyable stretch of road to ride, quite a few twists and turns and the landscape progressively changed which made the scenery interesting
Reaching Coober Pedy
While Nigel had the Maree Hotel on his to-do list, Mark had staying in an underground hotel on his. These were our underground rooms at the Desert Cave. Quite cool!
You'd think with the concentration on my face that I would have made this shot, but I didn't! After a few quiet beers we got a good night's rest in preparation for the big day of riding ahead.
This was an absolutely great day on the bikes. Departing from Coober Pedy we headed out towards the Painted Desert on big wide open dirt tracks
Not too long into the morning we took a side road that was absolutely brilliant. It made its way through a mixture of big wide open spaces and twisted through a number of hilly sections with outstanding rock and sand colouring. As the track lead on, it just got better and better
