2018 Kakadu Road Trip - Berry Springs to Darwin

As it was only a short drive to Darwin we had a sleep in and then drove into town. We arrived at the Free Spirit Resort Caravan Park early in the morning (around 10am). However they wouldn't let us on our site, it took us 3 visits to the office to tell them that the site was empty and for them to reluctantly let us in. A bit of a shaky start for us in Darwin. We had heard great reviews of this place.

Our site was directly opposite the toilet block and street light. Convenient in some ways but the light never turned off so our site was lit up all night. Poor Nathan in his swag - luckily he didn't seem to bothered by.

First priority was do some grocery shopping - we eventually found a Woolies and stocked up. The GPS sent us on a wild goose chases.
Next on the agenda was a visit to Mindl Markets. After another GPS wild goose chase we found the beach and markets. What an amazing place - it was so busy. We strolled through all the stalls and found a few things we wanted to buy. Madi found a wildlife encounter where you can hold birds and reptiles while taking selfies.

Deciding on what to have for dinner was a challenge - so much to choose from. Once we had our meals we headed to the beach to watch the sunset, along with about 1000 other people. We definitely were not in the remote outback anymore.
