Welcome Back!

Sunset at Mindil Beach, Darwin, NT


Gaffa and I are back from our 2 week Outback Adventure! After 13 days on the road, 5224 kilometres of driving, over 4,000 photos, only 2 or 3 days without showers, a lot of sweat, about 50km of walking/hiking, a million flies and mozzie bites and sleeping in an airport... we are back to work for 12 days and then off on our travels again. Yipee yi yo!

Our itinerary changed because there was alot of nothing-ness between the major towns, and Kakadu (called Kaka-don't by locals) was mostly underwater. So we ended up spending about 2-3 days in Darwin at the end of our trip.

The highlights of our trip for me were:
- The numerous sunrises and sunsets we saw
- Kings Canyon, and seeing the sun rise as we got to the top of the canyon
- Litchfield National Park, the waterfalls and waterholes
- Nitmiluk National Park: Katherine Gorge and Edith Falls
- Barossa Valley
- Mindil Beach Sunset Markets

A little teaser, here are some of the photos I took:
