A few more pic's of the water falls

Litchfeild N.T

We have been to Litchfeild they say it's better the Kakadu so we will see.
There are 11 water falls even though it is the dry season there is still water flowing from them all. They are all beautiful you can swim in them all which is great as you are so hot by the time you get to them you want to cool off. It cost nothing to go into the park which suprised us it is the first National park all the way around so far that has not cost anything, it cost if you want to camp there. We got a great laugh walking through Wangi Falls there where heaps of noisy smelly fruit bats and dad hates bats so when one shat on the back of his neck we all got a great laugh. 'sorry dad'.
We stayed at the Safari camp ground " yes well what can i say had to be happy it had power".
We did enjoy our Litchfeild Kakadu has a lot to beat.

More pic's


We have been to Kununarra which i did enjoy a few days hanging out buy the pool taking it easy all this travelling and sightseeing can take it out of you. We went to to the markets i for this artist called Al Mason he does drawings of the boab tree which i now love but he gives them such creature i love them i bought two. And we have had Mason's and Ella's birthdays aswell.
We went out to the zebra rock place it's the only place that has this rock it is beautiful the kids loved feeding the fish. We spent 2 night at Lake Argyle.
We have eventually crossed over to the N.T we spent 2 nights in Katherine, we caught up with Rob and Lorraine that we meet in Whyalla which was great, we went to the hot springs it so nice he water is 32 all the time we spent a few hours there.
The kids had fun swinging of the rope with this little aboriginal boy.

Bungle Bungles

It was off to the Bungles, We stayed at Spring creek a road stop not far from the turn off to the Bungles, it was nice and shaded we were glad we got there early so we got a go camp site, there was no water in the river which was ok because that meant no croc's, there where some very large stray Brahman bulls, we went looking for fire wood and there was a big fella on the bank and Mason was wearing a red t-shirt so he took it off and hid it in his pants, i couldn't stop laughing.
The next day we were up at 5.30am to get an early start much to my disgust and it was raining, it take about 1 1/2 hours to get in there the road was just crappy,
The Bungles are very beautiful you just have to see for yourself it is quite unlike anything i have see yet, Cathedral gorge was huge and ecidna casem was amazing so many stones make up this massive mountain then to have this big split through the middle was hard to believe. Mum and Dad stayed with the vans as they have done it bfore, we had a great day we were all stuffed but we had a great camp fire a glass of wine what more can i ask for.
