Necessity is in Darwin

The coastal passage has come to an end in a small, landlocked marina here en Darwin. Indonesia is next. Before that we will, however, explore a little inland in the Northern Territories. Maybe we can find some croc free lakes were we can go swimming? Maybe we can find some aboriginal people that are interested in sharing their thoughts? That is what was missing during our otherwise fantastic sail over the top of Australia. It is the most beautiful landscape, and if you time it right you may be doing 11 knots for hours on end. Just don't get the timing wrong.
Darwin is a very nice town with all the facilities, but don't go to the local croc farm/zoo. It was not up to Australia's normally very high standards.
