Sunny Darwin

Recently hubby and I and our good friends went to visit my
brother in Darwin

The weather was gorgeous and a great escape from
the bitter cold of Melbourne

Darwin Harbour

We had a fabulous time looking around Darwin
and the many attractions. Three Years ago this harbour
development was a dirt bowl so we certainly have noticed a big change.
Now with the new Wave Pool and Convention centre it certainly
has become a busy place.

Florence Falls

Next we headed to Litchfield Park and visited the many waterfalls
and billabongs, we had a swim at Wangi Fall which was very refreshing.

Jumping Crocodiles

We also visited the Jumping Crocodiles at Adelaide River, which is a must
when visiting Darwin. It was amazing to see these
wild animals in their natural habitat and surprising at how
high these animals can jump, when a bit of food is offered. This is
one boat you do not want to fall off, of, as you would certainly be
somebody's dinner.

We also visited Mindle Market, Cullen Bay and Fannie Bay, its such a pretty place 
with some fabulous restaurants, hence the reason that I now
need to do some serious excercise.

If you get the chance Darwin is a great place to visit and the weather is fabulous, I certainly
could get use to it.

Cheers!!
Mandy
