Forget about the wet t-shirts from Broome and the parties. I got to Darwin for work on a mango farm… By the time of writing this I’m still alive, but wrecked worse than a 400 years old shipwreck. The sun is still shining and nothing reveals a raining season upcoming soon. Hopefully you guys in Netherlands and in Europe are in a not too wet condition 😉
Although temperatures are soaring to 34-36 degrees.
It was not as easy as it sounds. The relocation van I reserved got canceled without notifying me online xenical. With a lot of luck I found a camper at the company a street away, leaving a day later. As Carol came with me from Ecobeach we spent the time in the swimming pool and chilling in Broome.
Travelling 2000 km in 4 days is a lot and with visits to national parks you end up driving more than 550 km per day.
Our first stop was Geiki Gorge NP with its beautiful deep blue water and small cliffs. It wa not really busy in the park and the trails were badly marked and maintained. Also the place was infested by wild passion fruit which is an invasive weed in Australia. We walked only for an hour and a half through the park, since it was getting late and had to drive another hour to our camp rest area. Still I think the beauty of Geiki lays in views from the river if you do a boat trip.
We drove towards Ngumban Cliff Lookout. By the time we arrived it here it already got dark and we had absolutely no clue what the place look liked. Next morning the first light woke me up and soon after I saw an amazing sunrise. The rest area was on top of a cliff surrounded by sheer drops and other cliffs. It was an amazing place for brekky (breakfast), undisturbed, the only one on the cliffs. As the sun came higher in the sky we packed our stuff and left early towards the town Kununnura which is close to the border with Northern Territory.
Kununnura is a pleasant lakeside town with Mirima NP just bordering the outskirts of town. To me one of the nicest park I’ve seen so far. It’s not well visited and the trails lead through the broken sandstone range with its steepsided valleys. Tropical plants thrive in this protected environment. This time we had enough time to explore the park. But again while we drove to our next rest area at Lake Argyle, the sun set quickly and we had to drive the last short bit in the dark.
