Up early to make the most of the day as it gets dark here around 7pm.

We drove through Batchelor into Litchfield National park famed for its waterfalls which run even in dry season.

Called in to the magnetic termite mounds. Magnetic cause they are all angled North /South to regulate their temperature. Believe it or not the ability to build the mounds at these angles is passed on genetically from generation to generation.

The trek up to Tolmer falls was cool as we gazed from the lookout down on the falls. Must be amazing in the wet season.

Wangi Falls was packed as it was the most popular area in litchfield. We liked the trek and the views but the water was a little grimy for us so we decided not to take a dip but move swiftly along to the Buley rockholes that we heard were amazing.

We werent disappointed at the spring fed pools were crystal clear and nice and cold. We had lots of fun sliding from pool to pool and splashing around like geese!!!(Mum, I'm still nearly as white as the geese back home!!, Who says Factor 50 doesnt work!).

Our last stop on this camping trip was to Florence falls where we did a lovely 2 km shaded river walk before driving back to Darwin where we have some time to sleep in a comfy bed before flying to the east coast.
