There was a lot of traffic turning into the Lassetter Highway on their way to Yulara. The closure of the Ayers Rock climb has increased the amount of tourists headed out to the Rock. Even the Erldunda Roadhouse campground was packed.
This is due to all accommodation and camping at Yulara being totally booked and a prohibition at the moment for roadside camping.
Another drawcard at Erldunda is “Cluck Norris“, the infamous rooster who starts crowing each day at 3am. I was lucky enough to get a campsite at the opposite end of the park to his coop so it should be quiet for me.
The Campground has a sunset viewing platform and it provides a good chance to chat with fellow travellers from around Australia and the World.
Tomorrow it is a quick drive into Alice Springs.
