Alice Springs Desert Park

This morning we had breakfast at the Red Dog Café in Alice Springs. Michael and I had delicious pancakes and then we were off to visit the Alice Springs Desert Park.

At the Park we saw different kinds of animals, reptiles and insects in various habitats like Desert Rivers and Sand Country as well as a building called the Nocturnal House where we saw nocturnal animals in their active state (because the rooms were dark). There was a bat cave in the Nocturnal House with Ghost Bats. We saw them hanging from cracks in the rocks upside down. We also saw them fly away.

We saw Kangaroos lazing about under the trees taking an afternoon nap.

After the Desert Park, we went for a tour of The Royal Flying Doctor Service Base Station. We learned how The Royal Flying Doctors help people in the Outback of Australia. We saw the room where they receive their calls and dispatch the doctors and nurses where they are needed. They provide non-emergency care as well, running medical clinics throughout the Outback.

I am enjoying our stay so far in Alice Springs.
