We left the Litchfield national park this morning (Sunday) and drove towards the Stuart highway stopping off at the magnetic termite mounds. It looked like acres of headstones facing the same way. They build their nests with the thinner sides facing north-south to keep them cooler.
Further south at Rum Jungle we visited a butterfly park with cafe, accommodation, swimming pool, hand built waterfall and rock pool with yabbies and a snake skeleton, apparently the snake fell in the pool and the yabbies ate it! The butterfly house was beautiful but pretty difficult to get a still shot. After feeding the goats and rabbits we headed for Katherine where we bought supplies and petrol and turned off the Stuart Highway to Kununurra. Decided to stay at our first free roadside park. You wouldn't believe the amount of vans that pulled up. We were serenaded while having dinner by a woman playing old sing-along tunes on a piano accordion. There have been several road trains passing this evening one even honking his horn at us they are very noisy particularly when there is only canvas between you and them!
