Australia, Northern Territory

An amazing day in Australia’s far north

June 30, 2012

This is another dorky blast from my past!

When we were kids, in the day before highway bypasses, we did a few looonnggg car trips every year. In order to help pass the time, my parents would play us John Williamson tapes on the car stereo.

His website calls him ‘Australia’s true blue balladeer’ and he sang at Steve Irwin’s funeral. I learned a lot more about Australia than I ever realised about the time and it wasn’t until I was an adult that I realised the girls he names in the video above are the names of towns in the Northern Territory. Whenever I hear it it reminds me of those epic landscapes and frontier-style towns that make the NT what it is.
