This is post #59 in 100DaysOfBloggingChallenge

July is a great time for a short getaway to Darwin. It’s dry and warm (31 degrees to be precise), which is a very pleasant change if you are visiting from freezing Melbourne in at this time!

I spent a couple of days in the city of Darwin followed by four days in the Mary River Wilderness Retreat! For four days, I was with a group of 30 people and a tour operated by a Top-End touring agency. We lived in forest bungalows/cabins amidst nature, went to Kakadu National Park, Litchfield National Park, Ubirr rocks, Billabong cruise to see crocs and lot of birds, few walks around the retreat!

For all my love of sunsets, I did the famous Darwin Sunset Cruise and it was mesmerising..
