Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia

This time last week we arrived in Perth after our week’s holiday in Darwin. We had a really good and relaxing time. Great to see my son and grandsons as well. The weather was fabulous – around 30-35 degrees. It was so good to be warm! Below are some photos from Darwin Museum and Art Gallery, The Botanic Gardens and Darwin Wharf. We also went to Bachelor (about 105km south of Darwin). In the 1950’s it was the town-site for mine workers at the nearby uranium mine called Rum Jungle.

The crocodile in the above photo was called Sweetheart!

We are back home again now and being optimistic that Spring is on its way.

My six-week philosophy course finished in August. I am missing the interesting weekly discussions we had. In the interim I have signed up for a ten week (1 hr per week) course titled Presence of Mind with the School of Practical Philosophy. The course is online and made up with people from different states of Australia and three people overseas. Fascinating!

  1. Great to have a holiday!
    Did you drive? If you did… how long would a trip like that take?
    I’m sure spring will be there soon… I don’t mind that the warmth hangs around here a little longer! 😉

  2. I googled it and this is what I found:”The calculated flying distance from Perth to Darwin is equal to 1648 miles which is equal to 2653 km. If you want to go by car, the driving distance between Perth and Darwin is 4027.68 km.” We are in Busselton and a three hour drive to Perth I read elsewhere that it takes about eight days to drive there. We went by plane 🙂
    We are feeling the benefits of our little holiday!
