Kings Creek Camel Station
Camp

Our camp the second night was at the Kings Creek Camel Station, where Sahara Outback Tours has a permanent campsite. As we stowed our gear in the tents, someone spotted the camels out back (there was a fence to keep them out of the camp area). ac-kc-camel.jpg (16812 bytes)

Each tent had two cots. And the next morning I found mine also came with a scorpion.

An Aussie friend told me this was a mickey bird. I'd say it was more of a mooch. I stopped at the station store for a snack and this bird landed at my feet as soon as I crinkled the cellophane. ac-kc-micky.jpg (13019 bytes)
King's Creek Camel Station runs a kangaroo orphanage, providing a home to little roos whose mothers were killed on the road. Kangaroos make driving at night or at dusk a little more dangerous.
