I will be on holidays for the next couple of weeks so I am not going to be around much. Anyone who wants photos published in their posts, please continue to e-mail them in, including the name of the thread they want the photos included in. I will publish them between the 13th and 15th of August.

Some photos from the Northern Territory will appear here in coming weeks.

Enjoy your trip.

And watch out for those crocs!

About 25 years ago I was part of a tour group and we visited Ayer's Rock and Alice Springs in NT. We brought telescopes to look at the southern night sky (lots of stuff we can't see in the USA), and the area near Ayer's Rock was very dark, few kights that would blot out the night sky. I didn't see any crocks, but we were in the desert areas. No kangaroos either, maybe they stay clear of humans like American deer do?

Enjoy your trip.

The NT is rife with crocodiles.

Darwin residents can find saltwater crocs in their backyards.

And salties love to eat tourists, with or without sun cream.

No salties or freshies where I am going although there will probably be scorpions, inland taipans (the deadliest snake in the world) and the occasional dingo, emu or red kangaroo.

I'll be in the Red Centre rather than the Top End. Smile

Journey starts tomorrow at 09:00.
