    Today we hiked up to the Gunlom falls infinity pool, wich is only about 500m away from the carpark - but we had to climb half the way. All that at 35 degrees and high humidity (thanks to the little bit of rain during the night).

    Now we're back in Katherine, we have to replace the cracked rim with the one from the spare tyre and hope to find someone who can fix the rim when we come to Cairns.

    Nitmiluk National Park

    June 20, 2017 in Australia

    The former Katherine National Park / Gorge has been renamed Nitmiluk, the name used by the traditional custodians the Jawoyn and Dagomen people.The river was the foundation to their culture as it provided an abundance of food and water.
    The gorge is located 30km from the township of Katherine and consists of 13 natural gorges carved through sandstone by the river, with rocks and boulders separating each gorge. We took a 2 hour boat trip through the lower gorges where we learned about the history of Nitmiluk National Park which wasn't returned to its traditional custodians till 1989.
    The traditional custodians have allowed a large area to be leased by national parks but there are areas of the land that have significant cultural importance and remain not open to the public.
    One large rock face was used in a movie that stared the first indigenous actor . The film was was called Jeddah ( pic attached )
    We saw freshwater crocodiles sunning themselves. ( pic attached ) We were shown some magnificent indigenous art on a rock face ( pic attached )
    There were areas of the rock face that were covered with plants -the modern day vertical garden. This is truly a magnificent place.

  • Day20


    August 3, 2017 in Australia

    Started the morning with a 5km walk along the river to a pop up shop, where we had a delicious breakfast.
    Headed out to Katherine Gorge, where Nick, Langdon, Harry & Nick went for a short walk, while I payed off some accounts on the deck, amongst the smelly fruit bats. MacLeod's, Moyle's & Badgers hired canoes were boated up 1st Gorge and then paddled to the end of 3rd Gorge.
    Back at Dave's, Heather made pizza bases, which we all used for a delicious shared dinner.Read more
