We left Alice Springs this morning and continued north with the aim of stopping in Tennant Creek that night.
A little way down the road we saw our first kangaroo since before Coober Pedy. We'd been commenting on how there didn't seem to be any around Uluru, Kings Canyon and Alice, and how if you were an overseas tourist you'd probably be dissappointed.

The time to stop for a coffee break coincided with our arrival at another strange place called Aileron, essentially a very small community centred around the roadhouse/pub. This place's stand-out feature is the huge metal sculpture of an Aboriginal warrior, seen as you approach the town, and another of a woman and child as you leave.
