Darwin NT - Mindil & Litchfield 25th & 26th May 2014

Markets & Termite Mounds

Yesterday (Saturday) was a big day. 620kms in very hot weather, we arrived at Katherine in the afternoon and went straight to the pool.
Today we rode into Darwin, settled in to the Travelodge and then went to the famous Mindil Markets.

Now the story gets interesting.
I have had a problem with my bike so took it to the BMW dealer to have a look at it.
They diagnosed a clutch problem, parts have been ordered and we are stuck here until they arrive and can be fitted.
Roadside assist have provided us with a car for the time my bike is off the road.

We decided to visit Litchfield National Park in the car.

Wangi falls in Litchfield.

Florence falls - bit of a walk down (132 steps) but worth it.

The Termite Mounds are quite amazing and well worth seeing.
