... followed us. As Zarli would squat for a wee, the calf would get up close and sniff her. The calf was very curious and wanted to play Zarli, People just watched and laughed at us as the three of us went on our walk. The next day we had planned to stay at the Devil's Marbles but when we arrived, there were no dogs allowed at the camp ground, so we drove a ...

... lunch at The Boardwalk Cafe at Cullen Bay fulfilling both the ocean and seafood quest. Had barra and veggies and Brad had prawns. Also had THE biggest cappuccino I have ever had. It came in a small soup bowl with no handle. Check out the photo. Darwin Coffee Civilisation rating 6 out of 5. Great froth, flavour, soy and huge size.

later that evening. At the hostel boiling water, I scoff with another traveller
of how **** kitchens can be, an Irish lad working at any job he can find I sit
down at his table and I’m introduced to his mate, both whom are Irish as well.
All three have thick accents and with them altogether, talking at speed, it is
almost impossible to understand, as if they speak a different English

Then we went to Crocodylus Park where they breed crocodiles for their skins much of which is sold to exclusive overseas brands. There were some massive beasts there, but we thought their small pens and pools were a bit cruel because they hardly had room to move. One of the keepers said that they feed the crocs a chicken every other ...

Everything about this park is fantastic, shade, location, proximity to very efficient public transport into city BUT it is very close to airport and Stuart Highway! Noise was acceptable to us but may not be to everyone, bus was a $3 ride into CBD and everything here lived up to its promises!
