Was another early start for this tour and it involved alot of driving!! One the first day we passed the Tropic of Capricorn and instantly could see things gettign alot greener. Our first stop was the Devils Marbels whcih were (another) collection of ancient rock formations which we were left to explore and climb at our own leasure which was interesting.
We also had a stop at the Daly Waters Pub- which is the oldest pub in the Northern Territory- and everyone who visits there is encouraged to leave a memento of there visit so the walls, bar, doors, windows etc are full of peoles cards, pictures, t-shirts, bra's etc etc. So I decided to donate my SMCC flag that I hung around the grounds during the Ashes, and signed it. So it now hangs proudly in the pub- anyone who visits there in the future are more than willing to add their signature to it!!
Our next stop was at Katherine Gauge to see the river and waterfall- unfortuantly it is the wet season in the north and we could not get there by boat so we had the option of doing it via a 3 and a half hour walk, which of course I did- and it was so worth it, the waterfall was flowing rapidly due to the rain and it was great fun to swim in it!
Then it was our final trip up to Darwin- a lot of driving over the few days but it was a great group and loads of fun.
