DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: On the search for further sights around Darwin I drove to the East Point. East Point is a bit north of Darwin and is a long beach. The beach was completely empty despite high temperatures in water and air, which raised some questions why. I knew about the dangers of crocodiles but nevertheless it seemed quite strange to me. Later I met a woman who explained to me that nobody actually goes into the water there, because the danger from crocodiles and especially from nettle jellyfish (stingers) is too great. Unfortunately there is an excellent beach with best equipment but no possibility to swim, although the water has almost bath tub temperature.
A walk through the free Sydney Botanical Garden with all its plants from around the world, especially tropical plants such as palm trees, trees and flowers, on a Sunday afternoon in March 2019. The Botanical Garden is located in the heart of the city centre, close to the Opera, Circular Quay and Harbour Bridge at Port Jackson. From the botanical garden one has a unique view to the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge and gets along the water to the Circular Quay. Circular Quay is the transfer point for numerous ferries to different places in Sydney and is especially crowded on Sundays. Most of the time, there is also a huge cruise ship at anchor.
