We awoke to an overcast, slightly breezy morning although this cleared during the day. As we did the 40+km’s into Warakurna/Giles, it was agreed by all who had travelled this way before, that the new Great Central Road is a far cry from the old road used on previos treks. After morning tea near the Giles weather station we continued on towards Docker River calling into Lasieters Cave. A great sighting of a herd of about 17 camels during the afternoon was a real highlight and allowed for what we all hope will be some great photos. We made camp in a roadside camping area at about 4.45pm – a fairly quiet night for all.
We left camp just after 8am to move on towards our first ‘treat’ for the day – a visit to the Olga’s often agreed by folk as being more impressive than the `rock’.
