On the road again: going north

June 23, 2012

Katherine Gorge, Australia's top end

This year has been pretty quiet for me, when it comes to travel. Since getting back from my trip around the world, I’ve been sticking pretty close to home, with the exception of a brief Easter long weekend jaunt to Kuala Lumpur & Penang. This is the longest stretch of time I’ve spent in Sydney in a fair while and my feet are getting decidedly itchy.

So it’s with great excitement that I can share that, thanks to Tourism NT and Canon Australia, I’ll soon be joining my good friends Ant and Elise from Positive World Travel and heading up Darwin to spend some time exploring Australia’s top end and trying out some of Canon’s latest equipment.

This won’t be my first time in the Northern Territory – that part of the country was the scene of my very first backpacking trip (more about that next week!) – but I can’t wait to spend a bit more time in Darwin, and get out and camp in Kakadu, which I missed the first time round.

      Thanks Martin, I can’t wait. Your photos of the girls swimming in the croc-infested waters makes me nervous…if there’s one thing I learned on my first trip to the top end it’s that there a crocs in EVERY waterway! Including the freshwater pools we swam in out Litchfield…!
