Darwin appears to be the best place to be in winter. It’s nice and warm all the time – much like summer at home!
The only downside is that the beaches aren’t up to much and the town is very small. Not really a problem though.
I’ve been whiling away my time playing cards in the hostel and reading The Stand (an immensely long book). There’s not much to do here except go see the national parks, and that’s pricey.
So, tomorrow I’m off to Cairns. Hopefully same or similar weather conditions, and better beaches! Fingers crossed…
