A Good Friday at The Territory Wildlife Park

Hugh has a busy weekend, working everyday over Easter. He appreciated the fact that his mother Pam and also Terry saw him working this week on their visit to Darwin
The Territory Wildlife Park is in my mind the Top End's best value tourist attraction, even if my son does work there!! Lots to see and the entrance fee is quite reasonable.
The Flight Deck was as usual a highlight of our visit as was the Aquarium and the Aviary.

Hugh chatted to a NSW couple who were feeling the heat and humidity.

Litchfield National Park Trip...

We drove to Litchfield National Park and had a really great day. The weather was largely kind to us and as its been a long wet WET we saw lots of wonderful waterfalls. We had a short break in Batchelor and then went to Florence Falls, Buley Rock Hole, saw the Magnetic Termite mounds, Wangi and Tolmer Falls. It was a long day and all enjoyed the experience.
