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.
Somehow I could not find any pictures of the third day in Sydney and also of the fourth day none. Probably there were no pictures. On the third day in Sydney we had met at the university for lunch with the group.„2017 Western Australia – Day 3 – Rottnest Island“ weiterlesen
