I had hoped to go on an AnimalTracks Safari (tour day into Kakadu with Aboriginal and Balanda tour guides finding bush foods and having a sunset cook up over the floodplains) but the woman at the front desk said they were all booked out. "Oh well," I thought, "It's not to be".
Our first stay in Kakadu (Gagudju) was at Cooinda, near the beautiful Yellow Waters. Two spectacular wildlife filled cruises made me crave a better lens for our camera even more!!
Leaving Darwin for our Top End Tour with the FIFO Grey Nomads: first planned stop Litchfield National Park; first real stop - massive road side cathdral termite mound for closer examination.
Yes, it was nice to be back in civilisation. With a small caveat.
Another beautiful national park! Ho hum...
Mataranka was the backdrop for our middle man turning eight!
Rather than skip central Australia entirely, we thought we'd duck down from Tennant Creek, and spend a night at "The Marbles".
Coming out of Lawn Hill, there was a lot of driving!
It took some getting in to Boodjamulla National Park, but it was well worth it!
