Australia, Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks, 20 – 23 July 2021

Litchfield National Park is just over an hours drive from Darwin and has some small waterfalls and swimming holes. The most interesting thing I saw were the Magnetic Termite Mounds, they are flat and oriented North South so they receive the sun in the morning and evening while being protected from the midday sun.

Kakadu National Park, the main attraction for me was the Rock Art or Murals from the Past. A spray can was gargling the paint and spraying it out of your mouth, paint and brushes came from the bush.

The park is on Aboriginal Land and you must buy a $30 Park pass, valid for 7 days. Alcohol is banned, I was issued a pass at the Caravan Park to enable me to buy alcohol at the bar.
