WE have left Gove and are heading for the Hole in the Wall passage. Sounds interesting. The next main destination after that will be Darwin and should arrive about 4 days time.
Communications, emails etc have been difficult so please keep any messages brief with no attachments.
Gove is a strange mix. On one hand it is one of the main Aboriginal areas (Arnhem Land). But the port is just past an Alcan Bauxite mine and shipping port. Complete contrast of cultures. The Aborigines are very lazy and are happy to take handouts and houses. They have no work ethic and yet it is their land.
This was our view from Karacool.
