Darwin, NT, part two.

Darwin City We also spent a bit of time in Darwin City itself, apart from quite a few visits to the Wave Pool, we also went to the ANZAC Day centenial exhibition, which was held at the Darwin Convention Centre. The exhibition was awesome, it was really well done, taking you through interactive displays whichContinue reading “Darwin, NT, part two.”

Darwin, NT, part one

With the weather warming up and a few birthdays coming up we decided to head straight for Darwin. We did contemplate going to see the Jumping Croc cruise, but then we all didn’t really like the sound of going in a boat and seeing wild crocs jumping up right near us. It just seemed unnaturalContinue reading “Darwin, NT, part one”

Kakadu National Park, part three, Northern Territory

Jabiru, East Alligator and South Alligator regions The drive from Cooinda to Jabiru was one of our shortest trips, a mere 48km, however we did chuckle as not long after we left Cooinda we passed a sign saying Jabiru 48km, then after travelling a further 5 km we passed another sign stating, Jabiru 51km………. welcomeContinue reading “Kakadu National Park, part three, Northern Territory”

Katherine & Edith Falls, Northern Territory

After we left Keep River NP, we decided to continue driving all the way to Katherine as we needed to refill the fridge and the gas bottles. We stopped in at Victoria River Roadhouse for lunch and arrived in Katherine about mid-afternoon, setting up camp at the Big 4. Immediately we weren’t impressed with theContinue reading “Katherine & Edith Falls, Northern Territory”

Keep River National Park, Northern Territory

Almost a year to the day when we left way back in August 2015, we have reentered the NT and quickly reset our clocks forward an hour and a half, thank god the sun now rises at 7am not 5:30am!!!!!!  Central Australia impressed us immensely when we were there last year, so there is aContinue reading “Keep River National Park, Northern Territory”
