    Darwin (delays and double ups)

    July 31, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    With the new fridge on a (slow) train from Brisbane we filled in another few days in Darwin doubling up on a few experiences we'd already done - more fun at the Wave Pool and the water slides, back to the Ski Club for Sunday afternoon beers, and another dinner on the beach at the Mindil Beach Sunset Market.
    In addition, Roy and the kids did some fishing (no luck so we bought some Barra from the local fish shop instead!), we checked out the NT Art Gallery & Museum (another FREE experience thanks to the NT government!) and made the most of being in civilisation to stock up some essentials like hardware and clothing supplies.

    Darwin Friday and Saturday

    May 6, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    We spent a gorgeous evening at the Wharf, eating delicious oysters and Chilli 🌶 Mud crab. The whole experience was just magical and definitely a great memory. The evening breeze was a welcome visitor as were the many fish dancing around the jetty below us. Sipping on a crisp sav Blanc whilst watching various ships, boats and yachts of all shapes and sizes drift by. Awesome.

    The following day it was off to the Parap Markets and Nightcliff for their Seabreeze festival. Parap is famed mostly for its Laksa apparently, so when in Rome....extra Chilli = deliciousness. This tradition was recommended to us and they weren't wrong. The market itself is pretty small with many stall holders the same ones from Mindil beach. This town loves their markets so clearly the sellers do the rounds - there must be at least 4 -5 different markets going on in varied places around Darwin in any given week.

    Seabreeze was a chance to sit back for the afternoon and watch the community showcase of local music. There were lots of other activities further up the beach strip but I'm afraid the humidity got to me today so after finding a shady spot there was no chance I was going to lose it! Performers were mostly school bands etc and there were some really talented kids who I think we'll be seeing on The Voice or Australian Idol in a few year's time.

    Our last observation for the day - and one of the reasons we ❤️ Darwin, is the relaxed attitude to pretty much everything including parking. Markets and festivals notwithstanding, Darwinians are happy to park their vehicles anywhere they can. This includes median strips, footpaths, grasses verges etc. Very civilised I say, keeping the roadways clear. Councils in Adelaide could learn a thing or two about "going with the flow".

    Stopped at the display at the site of the Strauss Airfield in memory of the airman that served in NT during WWII. Arrived Darwin and booked into Caravan Park for 7 nights. Went over to Palmerston City in the afternoon. Large shopping centre.
