The 4WD trip into Kakadu was excellent. We swam in waterfalls and up gorges. There were lots of rocks to climb and jump off into the deep pools. I enjoyed the bushwalking more then I thought I would! On the last day we went on a crocodile safari. I am glad they took us there after I had been swimming otherwise I might not have gone in!

After one last night out in Darwin, I left for Katherine. At the petrol station I met a couple of blokes on bikes going the same way as me, I have been bumping into them all the way down the coast. I also saw lots of brightly painted cars with people dressed up in pantomime costumes. They turned out to be on The Variety Club Bash, raising money for a children’s charity. They were heading the same way too.
The next day I passed into Western Australia. My last border crossing on this trip. They have strict rules about bringing fruit and veg into WA. I asked if a packet of instant mash and a tin of sweet corn would be a problem - apparently not! He did ask to look in one of my pods though. My panniers have now taken on a Sci-fi kind of image. I think I like it and will re-name all the bits of my bike. Any suggestions?
