Back to civilization

The night before heading back to Katherine we were invited around to Duck’s for a crab feast as he had just got back from the Cato River, an exceptional crabbing spot. What a wonderful end to a fantastic stay. We can’t express how deeply we were moved by the welcoming folk in Nhulunbuy.


It’s like going back in time to a place where children play in the streets without fear and where the outdoor life is a daily experience, fishing, camping and little TV. 

p8110119The rumours of incredibly high wages are most probably true but everyone works hard to earn their money. Often people hold down two or more jobs and this has to be balanced with horrendous accommodation costs (if you can get any) where a basic 3 bedroom house will set you back around $1000 a week!



We will miss Gove and all the friends we made.(We will be back)
