From Nhulunbuy, we travel back to our caravan in Katherine, stay the night, then drive to Darwin the next day. Again our caravan is left behind and we stay at the Mobile Mission Maintenance house in Darwin. We are excited to be back and enjoy catching up with friends and visiting some of our favourite places like the water park and Parap markets! Chris heads to work with Darryl (MMM state manager NT) and Geoff (MMM associate who he worked with in Brisbane).

We had been looking forward to this trip for a long time. We leave Katherine (and our caravan) at 5:30am, ready for a big days drive into Nhulunbuy. In this photo, we are still on the tar road and the sun is rising over Arhnem Land. The whole trip was 750kms with over 600kms of dirt. On the way we saw, brolgas, a dingo, jabiru's and buffalos! The trip took us about nine and a half hours. The road in was better than Chris anticipated and the excitement of driving through this beautiful country made the trip go fast.

We felt the excitement rising as we neared the border. The Barkley Highway meant long days of travelling, but we were looking forward to being in the Northern Territory again! We had to play Sara Storer as we came through Camooweal and crossed into the NT...'Back in the Territory'
