    Every One Travel The Nt!!!!!!

    Well after traveling aus last year, we spent nearly 3 months doing the fabulous NT and id have to say if you only ever get the oppotunity to travel one part of this great country once, then make sure its the NT....

    You'll be blown away by how primative, natural and simple the lifestyle is out there.....it truely is beutiful. The vast distances, the ever changing landscape, the isolation, the remote waterholes, the breath taking water falls, the lagoons, the natural springs..........Gods country!

    I have to say that after living in melb for 32 years, being a capitalist, racist, close minded typical melbournite, (no offence to any melb members) that after being out back, it realy will awaken the real person inside you, and make you see how beutiful life is and how great this country and ALL people realy are.

    Go and do it, dont talk about it......and when your sitt'n back at sunset, enjoying a wee' ale, remember how lucky we truely are!

    i went to arnhem land in 2006, and the cave paintings and the land is way more spectacular than any other area in the NT, its pretty much like Ubier ( i forgot how to spell it) all over the place. i also liked palmeston national park, the swimming holes and waterfalls were really cool, nothing like north queensland though' lol

    I'll be heading to katherine (arnham land)
    At the end of the year when I finish school.


    Best place in the world to make your own didges, and that's exactly why I'm going....can't wait!
