Let's fly Jetstar

~

So, it has been very busy for us recently. Tassie (which I haven't forgotten to post), work, sport ... & then a long weekend trip up in the Territory.

~

Ana, Oz & I flew up to Darwin to catch up with a good mate Norris who for the next few days would show us around his new home. We drove, and drove and drove... close to 1200 km I reckon in search of watering holes that we could swim in as those cranky crocs have taken over many that are closer to Darwin and boy was it worth it! The North End sure knows how to do waterfalls, waterholes and water in canyons! Coming from Sydney with beaches all around, it was fun to seek the fresh water stuff and really embrace the surroundings. One truly gets lost in the red rock, gum trees and endless blue sky.

We stopped in at the crystal clear Mataranka Thermal Pool, Litchfield NP and other watering holes to cool off, including the famous Humpty Doo Hotel where we chatted with locals and travelers alike over a few cold beers. We had the best time exploring; climbing through gorges; swimming through thermal rivers; chilling under under waterfalls and jumping off rock ledges. So much fun!

After much traversing through the countryside, we decided to do the ‘must do’s in the NT’.

We had an incredible time with the folks at Jumping Crocodile Cruises as they took us down the Adelaide River in search of crocs. These prehistoric creatures are pretty cool though - you need to check out the jumping croc tours if you're in the area. We had done a similar tour in the Everglades while in Miami; but alligators look like lizards next to some of these ferocious crocs. The guides were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. On our way back, a couple of hungry kites put on a very cool acrobatics show for us zipping by and hunting on the go.

Then capping it all off with a Darwin tradition, Sunday sunset at Mindil Markets where I bought my 1st pair of comfy Slappa’s.

A perfect way to finish the weekend. I highly recommend you get up to the top end... it's an awesome place to visit. Just prepare to be HOT.

Cheers, Adam
