Red Centre Adventure: Episode 2

By Ron Moon and Matt Raudonikis, 04 Dec 2019 NT

From the fossicking fields of Gemtree to the relentless sand of the Simpson.

4x4 Adventure Series Red Centre Adventure Episode 2 feature

The Red Centre Adventure kicks up another notch, as we depart the fossicking fields of Gemtree with the Simpson Desert in our sights.

In Episode 1 the crew began the epic journey at Alice Springs, cutting through the MacDonnell Ranges and stopping at Trephina Gorge, Ross River Homestead, Altunga and Hale River Homestead, before finally arriving at Gemtree.

In this episode – after trying their luck trying to strike it rich at Gemtree – Ron guides the convoy north to Tower Rock, before turning south-east in pursuit of the hard-to-find Boxhole Crater.

Battling relentless corrugations along the Plenty Highway the crew continues east to Batton Hill, where the traditional owners lead an eye-opening Bush Tucker Tour of the region.

Camp was set up for the night at Goyders Pillar, which wrapped up another epic episode.

In Episode 3 of the Red Centre Adventure, the team heads deeper into the Simpson Desert.
