It was 5 days of craziness out at Uluru, Kings Canyon, the waterholes and everything else in between. However, we cruised back into civilization to our new home of Alice Springs. We would stay for two nights in the town of 28,000.
Our mission in Alice Springs was to get high in the early hours of each morning. On the first morning, we took an open door chopper for a joy ride over the MacDonell Ranges and Alice Springs Town. It was my first time in an open door chopper and it fast became my new go-to vehicle. It was my favorite activity of our trip down under. Having the doors off means you can hang out the side, throw your legs down and enjoy uninterrupted views of the landscape.
The final morning of the trip was early as usual and a brutal wake-up. It was the seventh sunrise in a row and I was dead. But I was ticking another adventure off my bucket list by bundling into a hot air balloon to watch the sun rise over Alice Springs. It was much more peaceful than the chopper and a great relaxing way to start the day.
I’m with a few talented Aussie photographers on this trip and you can check them out at the links below. They are creating some epic shots for the tourism board and have some really unique styles and approaches to content creation.
