We arrived at Laverton this afternoon and headed to the visitor's centre to organise our travel permits through Aboriginal land.  We also visited the "Great Beyond Explorer's Hall of Fame" which was an excellent display and film about the explorers who first charted the areas we're going to be traveling through, sometimes with tragic results.

In the morning we head off along the outback way via the great central road. We're both slightly apprehensive and very excited about the journey we're about to embark on.  We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to explore a part of the country that most never see.

I don't imagine that we'll have phone or internet access across our route, but one never knows.  We expect to be at Uluru in about three days, and will surely update from there.

Wish us luck as we explore the great beyond.
