Bruny Island Berry Farm
| |

A flashback from Tasmania last March when we were on Bruny Island.  There’s a map in this post that shows where we were. There are a few berry picking farms in Tasmania, enough that there’s even a lovely tourist brochure highlighting them all for you. We decided to save our berry picking adventures for Bruny Island where we visited…are you ready?…the aptly named Bruny Island Berry Farm.  This could possibly be the best berry farm location ever.  Right across from … Read More

A Surprise Didgeridoo Performance
| |

A bit of a flashback, just back to Alice Springs… When looking at things to do in Alice Springs I came across the Sounds of Starlight Theatre.  We would have loved to attend the Didgeridoo Show Outback, but it was a bit over our budget so I crossed it off our list.  The caravan park we stayed at in Alice had a didgeridoo presentation on the weekend so we thought we’d go see what that was like.  I was so … Read More

Kakadu: Bowali Visitor Centre
| |

We spent our time in Kakadu near Cooinda and only stopped in Jabiru as we left the park.  We stopped at the Bowali Visitor Centre our last morning in Kakadu. Thankfully this visitor centre allows photography, so I did manage to get a few pictures.  We had debated not stopping here so we could get going to Darwin but I’m so glad we stopped in for just a quick visit.  This visitor centre was more about the land, the regions, … Read More

Kakadu: Mardugal Billabong Walk
| |

Our next stop after Katherine was Kakadu National Park.  The Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre in Kakadu was fantastic.  Unfortunately no photography is allowed so I can’t show you any of the fabulous displays.  It was one of those places where there were so many interesting things to look at that the kids took off in all directions as soon as we got through the door.  I kept having to wrangle them back together to point things out to them.  Heaps … Read More

Katherine Hot Springs
| |

You really shouldn’t come to Katherine without a visit to the hot springs.  Don’t miss it.  The water is beautiful and clear.  I’ve heard it can be incredibly crowded but one of the advantages of being here at the end of the season is that there aren’t as many tourists.  We swam in the hot springs on three different occasions, two on our first visit to Katherine as we were going north to Darwin and once on our way back … Read More

Nitmiluk National Park Visitor Centre
| |

After our lovely, hot walk to the Baruwei Lookout we headed back to the visitor centre to cool off a bit.  Actually, it wasn’t particularly cool in there but at least it was out of the sun!  All the kids had to have a good look at the handprints on the wall. We spent a bit of time looking around, there were a few displays and a video to watch.  I hate to say it, but we weren’t that impressed … Read More
