Preparing for Western Australia

Thursday October 13 & Friday October 14, 0km/0mi

Alice Springs NT to Perth WA

I packed up from the hostel, said goodbye to Alex, Dana, and a few other friends I’ve met over the past week. The airport shuttle service is operated by Emu Run (same as the Uluru tour), and since they only have 4 pre-set shuttle times, I had to arrive at the airport an hour earlier than necessary…but it’s only $19! (The taxis are at least twice that). The Alice Springs airport is tiny, and I was thru security in less than 5 minutes. We even got to walk on the tarmac, since they don’t seem to have any jetbridges.

The flight to Perth connected thru Adelaide, so I had 3 hours to occupy myself in that airport. I had a nice first dinner, a chicken and leek pie.

And my 2nd dinner was a delicious fish n chips. I will never tire of fish and chips.

The 4 hour flight to Perth was uneventful, and with the 2.5hour time difference, I landed at 11pm. I spent most of the flight time on my phone, planning out my Bibbulmun food resupplies on various spreadsheets.

I was too tired to figure out the bus system, so I got a taxi to my accomodations at a nearby holiday park (fancy RV campground, kinda like a KOA). Tomorrow morning I will be doing some food shopping, then starting the Bibbulmun in the afternoon!
