Australia - 2005-06-13 - 7 - Litchfield National Park - Wangi Falls, Spiders & Birds

The last stop for the day was Wangi Falls. It was a premier attraction for the park, when you see the area you know why. We were low on time at this point & needed to get to Darwin that night so we only did part of the walk, but it gave us several great views of the falls & the lake they fed. We also saw numerous spiders & birds while doing this walk. These falls are another example of a picture not doing the height justice. The pictures are from a distance, the falls were incredibly high.

After spending a little while here we headed towards Darwin. We ended up driving at night which is bad mainly because there are so many kangaroos that come out. We were lucky that we did not hit a kangaroo because there were several that crossed in front of us. Once in Darwin we stopped at a recommended campground which was full so we just went to the next one available. The place was a bit overdone, the lady at the front made us feel like we should be thanking her for taking our money. The rules there like closing the kitchen at 8pm & paying a full day if not out by 9am in the morning (they have a key entry to lock you in) treat you like you are a kid. I am sure they have had people in the past stay there who had made this a requirement. But it sure sets a somber mood, most everyplace we were at did not really have any rules. Either way it was an decent setup from a facilities standpoint. We used the time that night to get out plan ready for the next few days because we had a lot to do & we wanted to still see Kakadu National Park.
