Day 12 & 13 – Darwin and Berry Springs

Relaxing days in Darwin and surrounds. We spend quite a lot of time in Berry Springs (about 50kms from Darwin) just swimming and floating in the pools. The springs are quite special with 3 main pools that are clear and with lots of fish and freshwater turtles. The water is warm with a turquoise colour and relatively safe from crocodiles as they are patrolled twice daily by park rangers and with a crocodile management plan in place.

We also spend a night out watching a movie under the stars in the Deckchair Cinema. A must-do if in Darwin for this unique experience.

This is our last night before we head off to Tiwi Islands tomorrow morning. Our last feed at a restaurant in Cullen Bay as food could be scarce in the next 2 weeks especially with stormy days expected in the next few days; which could hinder gathering and fishing for food.

We are unsure if there will be reception at our campsite but will post as much as possible when at Pirlangimpi.
