Alice Springs Off The Beaten Path: 55 reviews and 234 photos
When we left Palm Valley we made a stop in Ntaria , the former old mission settlement called Hermannsburg that is now restricted Aboriginal land except for the Heritage Precinct and town shop. Albert Namatjira was born there in 1902. We had to cross a partially washed out highway bridge over the Finke River to get there. Whatever runoff caused that would certainly have also cut off access to Palm Valley. Unfortunately there was a funeral going on in the Hermannsburg Heritage Precinct, so the road was blocked. Zyg said that such funerals can go on for days, so we just made a stop at the Ntaria supermarket, and fuel stop/takeaway deli. BTW, the takeaway deli also has a computer with internet access. Outside a tame dingo (identified by its white-tipped tail) and another dog were begging for food.
