Day 40: Sadly we leave Kununurra and head for a rest area west of Katherine.
We have loved Kununurra and will miss it a lot. The idea of living in a caravan park, on a lake in a small town like Kununurra has a lot of appeal.
However, the rest of our travels call for our attention, so we head off. We lose 1.5hrs at the WA/NT border but we press on.
It is a beautiful day for traveling and as the first time showed, the scenery is stunning. Some of the prettiest of the trip.
We get to within 30kms of Katherine and stop at a rest area that isn't overtaken by grey nomads. This is because there are no toilets!
Just as a side: it puzzles me why the nomads need toilets, when so many of them have full ensuites in their caravans?! Just a question...
Anyhow, we are not perturbed and we set up camp, collect firewood and have a great night under the watchful eyes of the stars and a full moon.
The temperature has dropped considerably, and we all need our covers on tonight!
