Soak up a unique Australian outback experience of sharp desert sunrises and soft desert sunsets shared with tough Territorians and sensitive new age mineral explorers and geologists. Watch and commute with the endless sea of travellers; road trains caravans, camel trains and cyclists – if they cross inland Australia they will pass here; chances are they will call in for a cuppa and a chat. Creatures large and small abound as they pass by on their own journey across the desert. Experience “a little bit of desert magic” in your life- particularly through till March; when the wet season brings a splendorous beautiful sea of green shrubs, trees and grasses; fishes, frogs and desert creatures of every size and description, all laconically luxuriating in the beauty that is yours to wallow in – at Renner Springs Desert Inn. The geographical centre of the Northern Territory.
