Having heard so much about the beautiful scenery in the Northwest of Australia it was a no brainer to book a package deal to visit these National Parks. My premature arrival in Darwin courtesy of a panic buy flight from Sydney certainly afforded me the opportunity in terms of time and, since I had been unable to get to Perth and then travel up the beautiful west coast and flit through the Kimberleys, this was the ideal back up plan.
As with my snorkelling trip to the barrier reef it is evident that me plodding out a description of the length of the journey, quality of roads, tour group make up, etc will not do justice to the fantastic experience we were to enjoy. As ever our guide proved more than capable of the task of showing us as much as we could take in, suffice to say that, in my humble opinion, it can best be described as a "Wonderful 3 days".
I have decided, therefore, to let the pictures do the talking as you feast your eyes on just some of what this Fool was fortunate enough to witness:
Day 1 - Into Kakadu
Returning to the oppressive heat and lack of excitement that Darwin provived put this trip into even more stark contrast. As with all of the parks and natural landmarks that I visited in Australia I thought that this adventure ticked all the boxes and was well worth the cost. Darwin may not win my vote as the best place in Oz but Litchfield and Kakadu are places not to miss!
