Litchfield National Park

After Douglas-Daly we moved on to Litchfield National Park. We had 3 nights here and loved it. We did lots of walking, some 4wd'ing, swimming and just mucking around. On the way we stopped at the Butterfly Farm at Batchelor.

Huge Termite Mounds - look how little we are!

We walked into the Cascades - all of us except for Mummy got our sneakers ALL wet and muddy - Mum thought she was pretty good that she kept hers dry. It was like a goat track in parts. We had to cross creeks and climb up lots of rocks. We loved it. Daddy wasn't having as much fun as he had Chloe on his back.

We did 2 4wd tracks. The Lost City was really cool. It was super tall rocks that looked like it was an old old city.

The next one was out to Blyth Homestead, and onto Sandy Creek Falls. We had to go through some water crossings on the way to them - that was fun as the first creek had a sign that said "no swimming, crocodiles"!!!

The walk into the Falls was a good one too, and the waterhole at the end of it was really nice, but the water was super cold again. It didn't stop Mummy and she went swimming all the way to the other side and sat on the rocks near the waterfall. We think she just wanted some time on her own!!

We met some fun boys back at the camp, who were in their caravan beside us. We would disappear with our scooters and the parents would have to come yelling for us to come back for dinner.

We also went to Buleys Rockpools which were fantastic.

Next stop: DARWIN!
