Kakadu national park.


The highway back to Katherine was 300 kms of road I’d ridden up the day before. I don’t like doubling back (unless the roads are great or the scenery stunning), so I went through the national park. It’s a bit of a dog leg but it was worth it.

There are great swathes of wetlands that could be anywhere in the UK. Completely incongruous with the bush and totally unexpected. The local university had big signs advertising the fact that climate change will flood the area, which will be gone in10 years.

I probably should have taken a picture then! Scenery is hard to capture though, and sometimes you just have to be there. Here’s a picture of the park signs, which some hooligan has parked a motorcycle in front of!

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
