Day 116 - Wednesday 29 August 2012

Jabiru to Katherine

We did not get all that much sleep last night as we had some dingos barking and howling until the wee small hours- perhaps looking for mates. We had been warned not to leave shoes outside at night because of wild dogs and dingos.

It was a little cooler this morning while we packed up for a 300 kms plus trip to Katherine - we have decided not to go to Mataranka and instead we will have 2 nights in Katherine before going to the Daly Waters Pub for a night, then Banka Banka, Devil's Marbles and Gem Tree. We eventually got away from Jabiru at about 9:30 am and stopped at the Mary River Road House for an early lunch of toasted egg and bacon sandwiches. Mary River is half way between Jabiru and Katherine. There was not too much traffic on the road today in either direction, and we eventually arrived at the Katherine Big4 Low Level Caravan Park at about 1:30 pm, and were allocated site number 7 on the circle at the front of the park.

After setting up camp for 2 nights we headed into town for diesel, a few things from Woolworths supermarket, and yesterday's Australian - we are getting used to having our papers a day late and paying $4.00 for the priviledge. Back at the caravan park we tuned in the TV - 4 very snowy analogue channels - so David got out the satellite dish and we now have a perfect TV signal courtesy of the VAST System.

No photos again!
