Darwin for three months

sunny 33 °C
View 3 Months in Darwin on Wade85's travel map.

Work has asked me to live in Darwin for 3 months.. I think they are trying to tell me something.

Any way, I will be writing about places I got and see just so you can enjoy too.

Well I have arrived in Darwin. A quick transit in Sydney from Canberra and I am here.
Bit disappointed with Qantas. You would think Sydney - Darwin ( one of Australia’s longest domestic route. South east to north west) would actually have a decent aircraft as its the same flight time as Sydney to Perth. There was no individual personal entertainment system instead was the flip down roof screen showing the usual drivel. I am actually a little excited for what might be ahead. Great opportunity for me, afforded by good bosses. More up dates soon

So far I have only been to a few places in and around Darwin.

This pic is from Adelaide River, 200km south of Darwin . The town is little more than a pub, fire station and a WWII Cemetery with the remains of servicemen killed during the Bombing of Darwin.

The buffalo is named Charlie and he starred in the first Crocodile Dundee. After his death the locals had him stuffed and displayed in the local bar.

I am loving all the storms that rolls through Darwin on an almost daily basis. They only last 30mins of so but they are full of sound and light shows.

One of the other highlights (pardon the pun) is the amazing sunsets. After having grown up on the east coast, I was not used to the sun setting on the water.

Mystery Bay NSW

Camping on the South Coast NSW

sunny 21 °C

We decided quiet late in the week to go camping again.
Normally we camp in the Mimosa National Park approx 25km north of Tathra NSW, this time we decided to try some where new. Mystery Bay NSW was chosen.

The site was HUGE, lots of site. The layout of sites allow for only a few other campers to see each other with a 360 view, really well laid out.

The provision of amenities was basic, as advertised. Cold water taps, cold water showers and pit toilets scattered throughout the site.
