Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks, Australia

My last stops in Australia were two beautiful national parks in the Northern Territory, Kakadu and Litchfield.  I hired a car to tour around the national parks, which turned into a bit of an epic road trip – I covered over 1000km over the three days, soundtracked by my new favourite Ozzie radio station, Triple J.  I didn’t hit any kangaroos, although I did spot one by the side of the road which scuttled off fairly sharpish when it saw me approaching at top speed . . .

As well as doing some lovely walking in Kakadu, I saw lots of paintings created by the Aboriginal inhabitants of the region, many thousands of years ago.

Litchfield was also gorgeous but completely different: another stunning Australian rainforest landscape with streams and waterfalls trickling through the park.  I think the rainforests are my favourite places in Australia – there’s just so much to explore and see in them, and of course so many lovely (croc-free!) places to swim in.
