I finally got to Darwin and the seaside. It’s a far cry from Llandudno! (That’s where we went for family holidays most years). We used to play a game in the car on the way there, who would be the first to see the sea. It’s pretty daft when you think about it, as the sea is always in the same place!
Anyway, as small towns go Darwin was, er, small! A lot smaller then I expected. I suppose the fact it was a Sunday made it seem smaller, with all the shops being shut.
The bars were all full though and sounding quite lively. Lots of European back packers out on the beer. I’ve seen that before and it’s not pretty! I wasn’t in the mood for a lively night, so I headed out towards the national park and a roadhouse in Corroboree. The landlady took great pride in telling me the place was going to be on TV. ‘Australia’s most bogan pubs”.
