We stayed for one night, and then we decided to try to drive over the Duncan Road / Duncan Highway. A dirt road that stretches from Hall’s Creek all around the Bungle Bungle ranges up to the WA / NT border. Huge cattle road trains use this road for cattle transports as well. We just decided to head for a small billabong, about 40 km’s from Halls Creek.
It was a nice and red drive, passing ‘Old Halls Creek’ full of old cars and steam engines, going to Palm Springs. It was so nice, that we decided to stay for the night. Up the hill was an abandoned house / garage where we had a look at in the morning. Two rusty old cars and carparts lying around.

From there we drove back to Hall’s Creek to stay again for the night at the campsite.
