Planet View: S15°37.753′ E130°28.510′ Street View: S15°37.753′ E130°28.510′ We spent some time in Katherine (S14°19.067′ E132°25.252′)last weekend restocking our supplies and also getting a few minor items on The Tank taken care of.  The Tank was due for an oil change and we also had one front hub that wouldn’t consistently disengage from being locked […]

Planet View: S13°18.690’ E132°46.933’ Street View: S13°18.690’ E132°46.933’ One of our main stops up north is Kakadu National Park, one of Australia’s most famous attractions and (I think) the only site listed as a World Heritage Area for both natural and cultural features.  Kakadu is massive, it’s a third the size of Tasmania, and even […]

Planet View: S12°25.652’ E130°50.230’ Street View: S12°25.652’ E130°50.230’ We’re just about to finish up a very fun week-and-a-half stay in Darwin with my auntie, uncle and cousins.  It’s been a little luxurious for us, being able to enjoy their wonderful home in Fannie Bay after getting used to living out of The Tank as we […]

Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Misty Water

Australia Add comments

I’ve had a couple of enquiries as to why some of the posts on Our Walkabout have the pictures jumbled in a funny way around the blog content.  I try hard to avoid this, but the availability of different web browsers (Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox…) and different companies producing the browsers means that each browser […]

A Day At Mandorah

Australia, Northern Territory Add comments

It was another typical dry season afternoon today: hot and humid with big blue skies and pleasant enough if you’re lucky to have some swimmable water nearby!  We decided to take a trip across to Mandorah from our current home at my auntie and uncle’s house in Darwin.  Mandorah is located across the bay from […]

Australia, Northern Territory Add comments

Planet View: S23°41.973′ E133°51.695′ Street View: S23°41.973′ E133°51.695′ Our original plan was to head from Uluru to Finke Gorge National Park via the Finke Creek 4WD Track.  We drove the 250 kilometers to the beginning of the track but, upon seeing that it would be almost 50 kilometers of 4WD low-range in a sandy river […]
