Wollogorang to Borroloola and Heart Break Hotel, Northern Territory, Australia

(July 22 - 27, 2007)

Tim riding across the Robinson River.


The Savannah way, and they said it couldn't be done on a bike, Ha


Stone brush curlew, they have a mournful sound..


Tim pumping water out of a billabong.


Our campsite on the Wearyan River, notice the folding bowl to the left of Tim's foot.


A brown snake leisurely crossing the road.


Sunset near Rest area one near 39 km from Heart Break Hotel.


A wallaby getting a drink of water at Settlement Creek.


Foelsche River
 


Tim with our box at Wollogorang Station, notice the Ute or Truck to the right of our bikes.


Daly Waters to Katherine.

(July 28  - August 10, 2007)


Cindie holding a baby kangaroo in Larrimah at Green Park.

A magpie sitting on my handlebars, he wants a treat.

The grey kangaroo grows up with a big brother, watch out big brother this little girl can box.

Jackie (sitting) Glen (standing) and Kona (in the trailer). We rode with them from Mataranka to Katherine.


I am feeding a baby grey kangaroo, she was rescued from her mothers pouch who was hit by a car. Ben also known as Dr. Doolittle (to me) rescues animals like wallabies and kangaroo.  He mentioned that a lot of female kangaroos have babies in their pouches when they are killed on the street and we should look to see if one is alive when we pass by.  Let me tell you I can not pass another dead kangaroo on the road without wondering if there is a baby inside. so far we haven't found one, Tim says that's a good thing.

 


Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory, Australia.

(August 2007)


Cindie riding near the boat ramp near Merl campground, the birds are sulfur crested cockatoos.

Sandstone cliffs near Merl Campground.

Typical corrugated (washboard for you yanks) dirt road in Kakadu.


Fantastic lunch spot at near Burdulba Campground.


Yellow Water Boat Trip at the Kakadu National Park #1

(August 15, 2007)


Termite mound on the road to Yellow Water.

Our campsite at Mardugal campground.

A group of sulfur crested cockatoos in a tree.

Cindie looking in a billabong for a crocodile. Nope none in this billabong, that I could see.


Yellow Water River Cruise and Boat Tour #2.

(August 15, 2007)


Yellow Water before the sun came up.

This guy is hunting for breakfast or possibly a fight with the crocodile just 10 meters ahead of him.

Jabiru


Lilly pads.


Female crocodiles are usually smaller than their male counterparts.


A cormorant drying his wings.


Wild horses or brumbies still roam Kakadu.


A lovely gannet, I think.

 


Aboriginal community Oenpelli (Gunbalanya) and festival

(August 17, 2007)


Aboriginal women weaving baskets from using palms from Pandanus trees.

Aboriginal man working a beautiful painting.

This women is covered in white paint she wore for the local dance, she is also dyeing the Pandanus palms.

He is working on a painting in the artist area.


The wetlands near Oenpelli, the birds are Australian pelicans, the most I have seen anywhere in Australia.


Aboriginal rock art at Ubirr and Merl campground in Kakadu National Park

(August 2007)


Sandstone cliffs near our campsite.

If you want to see the rock art at Ubirr and get good photos, go in the morning, if you want to see a good sunset go in the late afternoon, the trade off is you won't get very good photos of the rock art.

Rock art under an overhang.


This ones a beauty, don't no what it is but I am sure it is deadly, we are in Australia.


Rock art at Ubirr, the hunter.


Jumping spider.


Sulfur crested cockatoo in a fruit bearing tree near our campsite in Merl campground, this guy provided hours of entertainment, he was quite friendly.


Sunset Photo #2


This sign is everywhere and still people ignore it, not 50 meters from here we saw a fisherman standing in the water fishing, I tell ya getting eaten by a croc would not be a pleasant way to go.


This is a fruit bat or dog with wings, these guys could be quite noisy and smelly.
