Day 5: It was really good to get back to Bidsville, though the town did look a little worse for wear, the Working musum had closed the week before I arrived, also Blue Poles art Gallery. The caravan park did not serve meals any more but a new Bakery had opened. ( Yum) I decided to go out to Big Red ( highest sand dune in the Simson desert, at about 200ft. ) unfortunately the road was flooded from recent heavy rain and I had to detour a extra 40km and cross several sand dunes. This was not possible on the tyres I had ( standard fitment Dunlops) but I got some good pics away.

The Simpson crossing was closed due to fire. ( only out there could you get floods and fire together) I also revisited the Dingo caves and Waddi trees about 20 km north up the Bedourie rd. These Waddi trees only grow in 3 places in the world. live for a 1000 yrs, germinate only every 100 yrs or so and are so hard it is difficult to drive a nail in.
