Dinky The Singing Dingo

Our last stop on the way back to Alice Springs was a roadhouse at Stuart's Well- which also turned out to be the home of Dinky, the world famous singing dingo. I have seen him on the news a few times before, but I never paid attention to where the family is located. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that "Jim's Place" is in the Northern Territory and we were making a quick stop there to change drivers! Dinky wasn't even around when we got there, but after we talked to Jim a bit, he was nice enough to bring Dinky into the cafe and let him sing for us.


Because I didn't take my own video, I'll link to someone else's youtube clip for an example:


F.Y.I. Dinky has his own Trivial Pursuit question in a recent edition of the game.
