Day 135 – 27/9/2019 on a Midlife Adventure.
Well my time in the Northern Territory is coming to an end today as I continue the journey west cross the boarder into Western Australia.
Only 250km to go today and that is good as the caravan fridge did not appreciate such a long period without power so will probably take a few days to recover.
The amazing sights continue as I make the journey west.
Soon enough Australia’s version of the border wall came into view.
I was in luck as I had done my research and my left over tomatoes and onions were all cooked up last night and safe to pass through. I did have to sacrifice some cut wood but i’m sure they have that in Western Australia although I doubt as good as this stuff was!
So another state finished and I really enjoyed my time in the Top End and I am sure I’ll be back another time!
After getting settled in at the Kimberlyland Waterfront Holiday Park, I headed out to fill up on supplies.
Dropping in at the Information Centre I worked out my plan of attack for the next week which includes back tracking as I didn’t realise the turn off was before Kununurra, WA.
Today however saw me head out for a drop of Australian Rum at the Hoochery Distillery.
I tried their Chocolate & Coffee Liqueur, the White Rum and their 56% proof fire starter. The Cascade water helped put out the fire.
Then heading off to the Sandalwood shop I made my skin all beautiful.
Nearby is the Ivanhoe Crossing, whilst I considered driving across it was flowing pretty fast and I would have just turned around and come back again so I just took a picture.
Heading back into town I went up to the lookout at Kelly’s Knob.
Then as the afternoon settle in and my head completely undone by the timezone change I watched the sunset over the Lily Creek.
The park has a resident Freshwater crocodile that comes to say hello at 5pm each day.
So the journey of Western Australia starts on this Midlife Adventure.
