And so on to Darwin. We stop in Jabiru at the bakery for an indulgence. Then on to Mamukala for a last glimpse at Kakadu wetlands proper. An excellent bird hide allows for great viewing of a variety of waterfowl. A large goanna prowling the shoreline is an added bonus.
The heat is intense as we stop at Bark Hut for lunch, fuel and a cool drink.
On to Humpty Doo in 38 degree heat. The roadside is flanked by large mango plantations. Unfortunately it is not Mango season.
Darwin at last and we gratefully collapse at J & L's place. A shower (cold), a swim, another shower a beer and we're almost feeling human. 5 days of R & R await.
