Darwin adventures continue: Litchfield National Park

Darwin day 2!

We packed up the car and drove to Litchfield National Park.

First stop: Petrol Station

Next stop: Litchfield, the town near the entrance to the park…

where we got excited about things like blossoms.

Clare earmarked a stop along the way into the national park, a lone banyan tree.

Further down the road we saw the amazing magnetic termite mounds. They’re called magnetic termite mounds because they run north to south. How do the termites know?

    I never see the daylight anymore on a regular basis. Today I stepped outside for lunch and got a small percentage of my daily vitamin D intake. MMmmmm. I love me micronutrients. When’s the big trip to the continent?

    Yvonne, get some sun young lady! If you do need to stay indoors, perhaps you could find a window?

    Josh it was great! Try to make it up there sometime!

    David, we did our darndest to stay away from crocs – and fortunately the fresh water in the national park kept us croc-free.

    People paint crocs as nasty coldblooded reptiles, but really they are full of hot panting lust for lasses in swimming costumes. They just get a bit over-enthusiastic in their courtship.
