          Average Backpakcer in Darwin

          Stayed a few days last year in this backpacker in a 4 room dorm. Rooms were clean and it has a small pool in the backyard. The backpacker is quite big and a bit impersonal. The kitchen was rather messy and a seemed a bit chaotic at times.

          No free wifi was offered which I think should be standard these days but this was missing at most places in Australia.

          Culture Shock

          We stayed in the Banyan View in Darwin for two nights - our first Australian accommodation after almost 12 months in Asia. To say it was a culture shock is close to the mark. The Banyan View is extremely clean, well managed, has excellent facilities such as a large common kitchen and outdoor areas. It is conveniently located on Mitchell Street near the city centre. What really shocked was the price - 4 times the priuce ofanywhere we stayed in Asia - the Banyan View can't help this - Australia is expensive!

          The Y.W.C.A owned Banyan View Lodge is reasonably priced. It is in a great location if you want to get away from all the racket of the "business" end of mitchell street and has some great facilities.

          There are also a variety of sleeping arrangement options to suit most needs, however it is spoilt by two major factors; Dirty rooms and bathrooms with old and worn facilities and Unfriendly, unmotivated staff who initially look at you with complete disregard, followed by hate and finally they just don't look at you at all!

          The clientèle aren't that much better, as a lot seem to be long stay's and make it known that you are an interloper whenever you enter a communal area. This isn't too bad if you are only here to kip and don't care about the facilities, but then if you are this way inclined I'd go to one of the noisy cheaper options in the centre!

          We all know that I travel - a lot. Thus I use a lot of travel products. Some are the usual that you would expect - travel size cosmetics and bathroom supplies, a suitcase, money belts, etc. Others are not so typical but for whatever reason it sounded like a good idea so I'm traveling with it. My travel stuff gets a very hard workout. This year ...

          I couldn't resist – before leaving Alice I had to buy a piece by one of the Aboriginal desert artists – but in the hundreds of dollars, not the thousands, and it was in a sale. I bought it at one of the galleries which specializes in women’s art and which I knew from my hostel roommate was fair to the artists. You can buy cheap...
