Continuing my exploration of the area around the Alice.

You'll also see a picture of the Todd River, which is normally dry.  They say that if you see the river flowing three times, you can consider yourself a local.

Every September they hold a regatta called Henley-on-Todd, where they run along in the river bed in hollowed out boats.  It had to be cancelled one year because the river was flowing!
