Walk to Lookout Hill – Part 4

I was greeted at the top of the hill by a series of cairns, built by past visitors. They have almost been as industrious as the termites.

Adels Grove was far below, under the trees. There was also an airstrip that you can just glimpse.

Airstrips are the lifelines of the outback, especially in an emergency. Speaking of emergencies, the Royal Flying Doctor Service are the heroes of the outback, and the focus of a lot of fundraising. During our stay the local mine invited Ernie Dingo (of Getaway and other things) to do a fundraising show for the service. I was glad to see that it was well attended by locals and visitors alike, and that the audience made a significant donation.
