Hi All, as you may have read I met up with members Doug, Noel and Scott at Mt Bundy station the other day, it was good to put faces to posts. Yesterday went out to Jabiru and met Steve from Top End Tours, he gave me some tips on what to see around the area. I visited Ubirr and checked out the rock paintings and looked at Cahills crossing. What a great place. Crossing was closed with a metre of water going over and what i presume was a locals 4x4 twin cab ute sitting in the middle getting a good flush out!!! i then went to check out the rivers in the area and flicked a few lures but no fish and didn't see any crocks. Then it started to rain like i have never seen before, so took to opportunity to have a quick shower, so refreshing. The rain didn't stop so i drove out the flooded tracks and crossed two floodways that were now .6mtr deep! Rain kept up till Humpty Doo then dry in Darwin. Had a great day thanks to EO members info. Today we are off to the Aquarium and a cruise round the harbour in the LARK.

Who else is in Darwin at the moment and enjoying the humidity?



PS Doug the Garmins going great now!

Hi Jay

You have to do the museum and art gallery . .

Stokes Wharf for a fish and chip dinner . .

From the visitors info centre, see if you can get hold of the historical walking tour map of Darwin . . .

Even give the hop on hop off Tour Tub a go . . .

Top End is great in the damp eh . . ))
