Hired a car (Nissan X-Trail) for the next 2 days. Today we went off to visit Fog Dam Wetlands, Litchfield National Park and the war cemetery at Adelaide River.

Clockwise from left: Australian Pratincole, Pacific Heron, Butterflies and
Tolmer Falls. The rare Orange Horseshoe Bat and Ghost Bat live in the caves
located in this gorge. Crowds at the falls lookout and Fan Palms after fires.
|Clockwise: Partridge Pigeon, Blue-winged Kookaburra, dragon lizard,|
dragonfly, orb-spider and Black Flying-Fox.

As soon as I turned the car's motor off it started pouring down at the Adelaide River War Cemetery.
After the 19th February 1942 Japanese raid on Darwin during WW2, other towns in the north, such as Broome, were bombed a further 62 times between 4th March 1942 and 12th November 1943.
|Not only soldiers died in the bombing of Darwin.|
I took this photo in 1969 which I believe was the War Cemetery. Is that how
it was then?
|Motoring back to Darwin. How fast are you going?|
