First, thanks to those making comments, I receive them, but, due to the cost of internet access, can only publish and reply to them occasionally. I am posting reports from my phone. Paul and Elaine, fancy an evening drink when we get to Sydney? We can talk narrowboats! We are there overnight on the 23rd I think. Anyway, back to Darwin. Formerley Palmerstone, now named after Charles Darwin. We are now back on track and today is a quality visit, with excellent port facilities, and free shuttle buses to town. The weather is perfect, if a little hot at 38 degrees. A small place, but full of interest to the likes of us. A perfect start to our 10 days in Australia. Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays next.
