Traditionally known as Munga-Thirri, The Simpson Desert spans 176,500 square kilometres, covering Northern Territories, South Australia and Queensland in central Australia.
I was fortunate enough to cross this desert from west to east a few years ago, traversing over 1,000 sand dunes. One might say seen one desert, seen them all. But to me it was like being on a roller coaster where at every rise the distant scenery below presented it self differently to what I had seen during the previous climb. The red sand was like no other I had seen before and as the direction of sunlight changed so did the shades of red.
Despite having spent five nights in Munga-Thirri I could not get enough of the Sunrises and the Sunsets. During this magical time of each day, whilst the land changed its shades of red, the skies changed from hues of pink to purple and every other shade of colour in-between. As if the land and sky was putting on a synchronised dance.
