Aug 7, 2012 - Howard Springs

Today we drove to Howards Springs just 23km out of Darwin. On the way we stopped at Coolalinga also just out of Darwin. There we saw a Truck that had Monster Wheels and was done up like a Monster Truck. Before getting to Howard Springs we stopped in at Darwin to find the FIAT service centre. We then drove back to Howard Springs Big 4 Caravan Park. After lunch the boys decided to find the Proposed Splash Park and search everywhere and forgot that proposed means thinkinf and planning about something and not actually yet built. The boys then...

HOWARD SPRINGS: 13th June. On Thursday, the 11th we again travelled north on the Stuart Highway to our next destination, the Big 4 Howard Springs Tourist Park on the outskirts of Darwin. After settling in to this large and shady park we spent the remainder of that day and part of Friday and Saturday organising the repair of our freezer and storage of our frozen food while the work was being done. We found some time to visit several markets in different areas of the city. Darwin is a melting pot of South East Asian, Australian and European...

Darwin, Darwin, Darwin Well here we are finally at our destination and how lovely it is. We arrived on Aunty Maureen and Uncle Bob’s doorstep a day in advance and it would have to be hands down better than any caravan park we have stayed at so far. It is difficult to explain the greenery here even though it is the dry season. It stretches in every direction as far as the eye can see. There are hundreds of varieties of palm trees towering over parks, reserves and of course peoples properties. The temperature is superb. A balmy 32 degrees...

Aug 31, 2007 - The Top End - Darwin

Darwin, we could see it immediately as we rounded Charles Point. The skyline we once knew had melded into one which took on the look of any other major city. Our smiles were wide and we were excited to be getting into port and seeing old friends and family. We called Chris and two minutes after berthing at the fuel wharf at Cullen Bay, we were exchanging hugs. Brent and Wendy off Playground also came down to meet us too and shared Kimberly stories. We entered the lock just after dark and were along side by 2100 (7 o'clock). Tony had great...
