On the Road to Katherine

Adelaide River, Australia


We left our Novotel, Darwin, just before the 8am sun rise. A long day ahead as the distance to travel one-way (Darwin-Katherine) is 320Km.
Our first refueling stop was at a small town named Adelaide River. We took a 5-min drive to the War Cemetory, passing wallabies out for early morning feed.

Then we were back to the "hi-speed" Stuart Highway for another 200Km drive (speed limit 130Km).

Trekking to 2nd Gorge;
More spetacular cliffs and then a free of "waterfalls-over-the-roof" treat before disembarking, back to first boat.
