Some enjoyed the break by swimming in the natural pool surrounded by red rocks and cliffs, the rest of us spent our time enjoying the scenery and chit chatting. Suddenly, a loud thump broke the silence, followed by a woman and her two children screaming at the top of their lungs. Looking around, I soon found the cause for alarm, a man had fallen off a thirty-foot ledge onto the sandy beach, the only “soft spot” available.


He wasn’t moving. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, one foot began twitching, followed by the other, he finally sat up, much to everyone’s surprise. Unhurt, and to the relief of his family, he made the journey back to the bus with only a slight limp.

The sun was racing towards its evening destination, so it was time to leave this beautiful paradise and head back to Alice Springs.
