... worry, they’re only freshies, and as long as you don’t look like a turtle or a fish, they won’t be bothered with you”. Then he took us down to see the croc trap to catch Salties, because they are a different story. They don’t care what you look like, you are prey to them and they will attack! After that little talk we stayed on dry ground for the rest of the day and were happy to be packing up camp and heading on to Pine ...

Day 15 Katherine Gorge National Park

A travel blog entry by elainedaniels on Sep 23, 2014

We knew we only had a relatively short drive to Katherine today and there were no noisy young girls in the campsite to wake us up so we had a nice lazy morning and didn't get up until just after 7am. We decided we had time for a cook up for breakfast so Ian cooked bacon and eggs for us all. We knew we would be in Katherine around lunchtime so I didn't worry about making lunches or putting anything in the ecopot for dinner - a real morning ...

We didn’t spot any crocs but went to two sections of the gorge and saw some old aborigine rock art. The gorge was very pretty and it was really nice interesting and relaxing couple of hours. Leaving Katherine behind we then made our way north to Kakadu National ...

... Everyone we have spoken to has told us that the pool is freezing, but we're not deterred, so we don the cozzies and wander down the the pool. It's another hot day, about 37 degrees so one would expect the pool to be a little bit warm, but it's not it's FREEZING, but we want to at least get to the edge of the infinity pool to view the lake beyond and once we reach the edge the view makes it all worthwhile. As it's Fathers Day, the resort has ...
