Most would think the next morning would be full of the sounds of ringing hangovers once more but quite to the contrary the town is returned to its ghost town like atmosphere as the travellers have left early to get back to civilisation before the working week starts once more.

If you leave town via the Birdsville track you will pass a memorial on the side of the road which gives you something to think about on the long drive back. A hundred kilometres out of town, the memorial stands dedicated to the five members of the Page family who's car broke down on this road in 1963 . The family attempted to walk out of the desert but died in the attempt.
