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!
