We had such a wonderful family holiday to Darwin, NT:
stayed with my brother
swam all day
ate ice-cream and Barramundi
drank beer watching sunset
swam some more
ate jack fruit (tasted like a bubblegum lolly!) and many many mangoes and limes!
listened to rock digeridoos
held a python
swam in waterfalls and rockpools
ate some more ice-cream
swam just a bit more!
Be Warned - this time of the year IT IS HOT! Sometimes the heat was deliciously enveloping, sometimes the heat was irritating and exhausting
Here are only a few photos - I had to hold myself back from loading more!
First up - gratuitous family shots
Leanyer Recreation Park - totally free - pool, waterslides, water playground, BBQ's, fully life-guarded - best kids place in Darwin!!
Florence Falls, Litchfield National Park
Darwin's new Convention Centre and Wavepool!
The Lagoon Pool! We must have spent 6 hours in the water here!

Some photos of the Botanic Gardens beauties:
We are Melbournians, so we had to take a photo of the wonderful display of SPRINKLERS!!
(we have water restrictions)
The Wave Pool! Lots of tubes and boogie boards to use.
This is the BEST!
