Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Katherine, Mataranka, Litchfield National Park with Merry.
I’m back on the air thanks to my web guru Charlie! Heavens knows what was wrong but I couldn’t add a new post and photos. Anyway, Charlie fixed it. Charlie, for my Probus friends is Barry Amond’s granddaughter. She runs a web business called Creative Action.
We’ve had a terrific trip. The weather has been perfect and the sights amazing and interesting
Unfortunately it’s now over and I’m alone again heading for Cooktown in Queensland.
This post wont have much commentary…I haven’t got much time and in any case I’ll let the pictures do the talking!
One other little drama this week was when I received a phone call from the Darwin Hotel saying some idiot had rammed Azulo! Luckily it seems that apart from a bent gear pedal everything seems OK
We drove to Jabiru, took a day trip to Arnhemland, then through Kakadu National Park to Cooinda, then to Katherine, then Mataranka and finally Litchfield Park
We did a day trip to Arnhem land where we visited an Aboriginal Community
Next more of Kakadu
We went on a Yellow River cruise..lots of birds and crocs….The Saltwater crocs are the dangerous ones and we saw a whopper..about 5 metres…Despite being called SALT Water crocs they happily exist in FRESH water too.
The Freshwater crocs are less dangerous.
Next we went to Katherine Gorge…simply amazing. Just like the photos except better!
Next we drove to Mataranka where we swam in lovely hot pools…The current in the river takes you leisurely along!
Finally we visited Litchfield National Park which is only 100 K from Darwin
Finally back in Darwin…Naturally we ended our trip at some good restaurants…one of the nicest was called “Char”
A truly terrific holiday. Very sad to see Merry go. Now i head for the dusty long road to Cooktown Queensland
