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 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.
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.
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: The video is about a flight from Sydney SYD to Darwin DRW in Australia in October 2019. The domestic flight took off from Terminal 3 south over Botany Bay. A little further south we flew a bend in a northwesterly direction to Darwin. At the beginning of the flight I explain some sights and peculiarities during the impressive flight over Botany Bay. The flight then took place over the Blue Mountains towards the city of Dubbo and further over the red outback of New South Wales and the Northern Territory. The landing took place around noon at the Darwin International Airport DRW.
DARWIN, AUSTRALIA: A few hours before the video I arrived in Darwin/NT. Looking for some sights I talk about the first impressions of Darwin during a walk through the Charles Darwin National Park.
