Note: Lots of pictures in this post. Sorry about the load time.
King’s Creek Station is a bit of a tourist spot on the way to Watarrka National Park (King’s Cayon), they have a service station with a diner, helicopter rides, quad bikes and camel rides. All of which were very expensive by Melbourne standard. We went off to see the beautiful King’s Canyon at Watarrka National Park, which was amazing. Unfortunately, due to lack of choices in lunch, we stopped there for quick steak sandwiches.
(steak sandwich with the lot – $12.00)
The beef was a bit of a piece of tough old boot really. At one point when we were talking about camel riding, Mum stopped chewing and asked, ‘Um, what kind of meat is this? It’s not camel, is it?’
The ‘lot’ included fried egg, bacon, cheese, caramelised onion, tomato, lettuce, tomato and barbecue sauces. I’d say it was rather yummy despite the really tough bit of beef. But then again, it was 2pm and we had been hiking through King’s Canyon. We were starving!
And now for some obligatory pictures from the Uluru-Kata Tjuta and Watarrka National Parks:

Don’t have too many pictures from King’s Canyon without people in it.
And then we headed on to the town of Alice Springs. Ah, the Alice.
