Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

King River (Katherine) 20 July 2006

King River (Katherine) 20 July 2006
Drove Jimmy down to the Bitter Spring car park and had another swim, this time with our face masks, so we could see all the underwater creatures. Another dimension to it all!! Like the Barrier reef under neath with all colours of green and different shaped weed, small yellow faced fish fighting the gentle drift of the current with us, good sized turtles ducking into small caves in the banks, large tree roots with beautiful shapes crossing under the water covered in glorious bright green waster plants. Did a quick trot into town and bought a traditional painting of two barramundi and then hurried back for another swim. It was hard to let yourself get to the bridge because we did not want it to end. We thought the whole trip was worth it just for this spring. Set off north late in the afternoon and settled down in a large bush camp on the side of the road with the usual group of travellers found at these spots. Everyone seems to space out well for privacy.
