Discovery Journey Around The Blue Mountains In Australia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฒ – E28

Although I have travelled a lot in Australia, I have never had the opportunity to see anything more of the Sydney area. To close this gap, I got a rental car and drove from Sydney west through the Blue Mountains and further south and back to Sydney. Interestingly enough, this film shows the still very small bush fire in the southwest of Sydney, which later destroyed everything in the area and tortured Sydney with smoke for weeks.

East Point Darwin/Australia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฒ – E27

DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: East Point is located northwest of Darwin and is quite a large park. I was looking for some sights that are not too far away. First was a beach that was completely empty. Only one daring person ventured briefly into the water. Here also my understanding problem of Lee Point Beach cleared up, why nobody goes into the water. Between October and May is the season for Jelly Fish, also called Stingers. A contact with those in the water independently from the danger with crocodiles can lead to death. So there was nothing left but a little walk on the beach. Some locals caught fish or collected something or sat on the parking lot and drank beer.

Litchfield National Park Australia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฒ – E24 4K

Litchfield National Park is located about 100 km south of Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia. The park has numerous rivers, waterfalls and pools in an almost untouched unique Australian landscape. Unlike the Kakadu National Park, there are hardly any crocodile hazards and the park is much easier to reach. Visiting the park is free and numerous signs provide information about the sights, including maps. Basically, it is also possible to camp in the park at certain designated places.

East Point Beach, Darwin/Australia ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ฒ – E23 4K

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.
