Reviewed 14 September 2010

Jim's Place at Stuart's Well is the home of Dinky the Singing Dingo. We heard about Dinky from some other travellers in Coober Pedy, and decided why not hear the dingo ourselves.

Jim's Place is a roadhouse about 90km (an hour) from Alice Springs. He sells petrol and such. There is also a pub/restaurant. Plus there is accomodation -- a full range from motel rooms to shaded caravan sites to the free outback camp sites.

We went for the free site and found ourselves pitching the tent in a field of red sand. We slept great, but had to be really careful not to get the sand in the tent.

The free sites can use the pool, barbecue, and the showers for a cost. But since we were only there one night we did not bother. The toilets are pretty old, but they were clean enough although a bit of a walk from the free sites. Still no complaints.

Since the lodging was free, we splurged and ate in the restaraunt. We were rewarded with a delicious dinner (Dan had a huge burger and chips while I had a cheese/mushroom toastie and chips). Plus, of course, there was the performance of Dinky.

Seeing a Dingo walk up and down a piano howling really is a site to behold. We all loved it and cheered Dinky on. So if you are headed to Alice Springs, leave yourself a night to stop off and see Dinky the singing Dingo. All money people give to see Dinky goes to charity so it is a worthy show indeed.
