After another brief stay in Alice Springs we packed up and continued up the Stuart Highway to our stop over at the Devil’s Marbles, a landscape of rounded granite tors tumbled together with a small camping area off the highway behind them. We had intended to travel into Queensland on the Plenty Highway but were warned off when we heard that it was very rough after the rains and a recent traveller had suffered major damage to his car on it. The maus-haus was unlikely to survive such a challenge so we continued up to Tennant Creek and took the Barkley Highway instead, blacktop all the way to the small town of Camooweal just over the border in Queensland. Settled into a caravan park opposite the pub we unpacked for the night then found some comfortable chairs on the pub veranda with a light beer for Meg and a lemonade and lime for Terry. We loved the town with its wide streets and interesting parade of locals to entertain us before dinner time.
