Gulf Country Day 68 - Borroloola to Darwin

ExplorOz - David & Michelle

We lifted camp this morning and headed towards Katherine. Mark and Sharon decided to move on ahead of us and we diverted out to Katherine Gorge in hope of hiring a canoe for the afternoon.

After stocking up in Katherine we arrived at the Gorge about 12 noon and due to such dismyal service and lack of canoes we left at 1pm. Maybe our tempers were running thin in the heat, but we were really put out by the poor service we received despite the operation being fully commercialised.

We drove on to Litchfield National Park and arrived around 5pm. We stopped at Buley's Rockholes for a quick cool down before finding a 4WD only campground at the base of the Florence Falls. We were a little surprised to find others camping here and even more surprised to find 5 vehicles from the Toyota Landcruiser Club whom we knew. It was Tony Price and Rob Alexander and co. so we spent some time with them that evening.

The night was extremely hot and the mossies became intolerable so we decided to go to Darwin tomorrow.
