Northern Australia near Darwin

After Western Australia, I decided to check out the tropical Nothern Australia as well. The flight from Bali to Darwin was very short – about two hours.

The climate in Darwin is just perfect: It is about 32 degrees during the day and 26 degrees at night all year round.

Darwin itself is not a big city. I found the National Parks close to it much more interesting.

One big problem in Northern Australia is that you cannot swim in the ocean because there are crocodiles there. So people go to the waterfalls and water streams in the National Parks for swimming.

This is probably one of the most famous waterfalls in Northern Australia:

A lot of Northern Australia is actually a type of savannah instead of a tropical rain forest:

This part is called the Wetlands since it is close to a big river

Australians are crazy when it comes to their road trains. Here are a couple of examples:
