Father and Son Road Trip Day 4

Katherine to Darwin was a mere hop, skip and a jump in this long haul to the Top End. The boys arrived in good time for Marc to meet with the real estate agent for key handover to his new home.

Darwin is the capital of Australia’s Northern Territory and a former frontier outpost. It is also the gateway to  Kakadu National Park, Australia’s biggest national park.  You can immerse yourself in rugged escarpments, lush rainforest and rock art galleries up to 20,000 years old, learn about Aboriginal culture from the traditional owners the Bininj/Mungguy people, take in thundering waterfalls and witness millions of migratory birds among the wetlands. Another place to bookmark for a visit.

They put together some IKEA flat packs

 went shopping for essential household items

Had dinner with some relatives

and looked at the essential photos of Finnally and The Black Beast.

Tomorrow Marc takes delivery of the rest of his goods and chattels.

That means unpacking, more IKEA flat packs to put together and find homes for all the stuff. All is well.

      1. NO! It’s a 3000 + km trip one way. Marc drove his ute there and Markku went along to keep him company, take turns driving, and help settle into his new digs. It’s a looooong, dry, often desolate stretch of straight road.
