I asked Gary if it was cool to take a photo of this little fella' hanging up proximate to my room in the Community House. I find it a little spooky but felt a little bit better about putting this photo up on the moblog when I heard that it was a gift to someone who had stayed in the house and that it brings good spirits to the space and place.

Looks basic but it is state of the art - notice the phone book propping up the lounge - it was actually a very comfortable place to stay with a shower, kitchen facilities etc. I was expecting to swag it and was pleasantly suprised. Well done Gary on keeping me ( Alex ) alive !

This is where visitors can stay when visiting Parnngurr. You will need to ring the Community Co-ordinator Tony and you will need express permission from the community to do anything other than meet/greet. There are many areas where you are asked not to venture into and that you respect the laws of the area and the wishes of the community. The caravan is an extra and so are the the donga's to the right although I suspect that you would fry in there during the next 6 months or freeze during winter.

I reckon that having gravel roads is as Gary put it ' more authentic' that the bitumen variety. Give me the grass and the grit anyday. Out this way bitumen roads turn to slush during the summer heat and are not much fun for barefeet so I suspect they will remain this blessed red earth for many years to come.

In this part of the school you have two choices of extra-curricular activity - hopscoth or the punching bag. This are backs onto the main high school students room.
