Kintore Sandy Blight 2014

By | Previous Journeys | No Comments

In July 2014, a group of four cars set off from White Gums in Alice Springs toward Kintore. We spent 10 days travelling through Kintore, the Sandy Blight Track and Uluru before returning home. It was a brilliant few days, especially hearing stories from our Walpari guide, Japanangka.
