a secluded water hole at the end of a canyon ... a bit too nippie for a swim !more amazing views from the top of Kings Canyonand that new camera tripod is coming in handy ....hope you enjoy the views of Kings Canyon as much as we did view of darwin harbour near the art gallery/maritime museum
towards downtown Darwinthis is Yellow River .. we took a boat trip to meet the localsand this was the first .. a nice 4m long man eating (or woman !) beastienot the performing type .. but the hungry type , just waiting for someone to make a mistakescary up close .. and a worthwhile trip down the river .. the sunset trip is meant to be even better
