McElholum road trip - up the Centre 2012 travel blog

On the road at 7.30 with destination 'to be decided'. Calculated we could make it to Yulara by 5.30pm so decided to aim for this so that we wouldn't have another overnighter. All was going to plan until we finally left the Stuart Hwy and turned onto the Lasseter Hwy. The horizon looked eerie and we thought there had been a sudden weather change and storms may have been approaching. Further along we realised that it was smoke, covering 150 degrees of the horizon. 80kms from our destination, at Curtain Springs cattle station, we found the road closed due to fire. Change of plans, this was to be our spot for the night. Quite a good spot, however, and free camping with facilities!
