Journal Entry:
Drove about two hours up the main road to Alice Springs. Drove around looking at the usual pub / hotel accommodation but didn't see anything great. When I went for gas Susie went to the information office and ended up booking a luxury hotel for the last night of her holiday.

After we Checked in and marveled at the decadence we spent some time at the pool - including a fountain and a swim up bar. Had a huge dinner of wallaby, kangaroo, and buffalo in town.
