Heavenly Hot Springs and Cool Caves

This is the land where shoes are very optional and cossies are on all day because they dry within minutes and the next swim is never too far away. Stace – you were bang on the money when you said the campers would be envious of our aircon and we would not have survived this trip without it!

Life doesn’t get much better!

Yesterday we defied the croc warnings (we are getting slightly less nervous despite the headlines that a guy camping 100km from us was dragged from his tent last night by a “saltie” as they call them up here) and spent hours in the Katherine Hot Springs. Such an incredible natural playground. Even better than the big bucket (Syd Olympic Park) according to the kids – result! Not too hot at 32 degrees but warm enough to stay in for the whole morning, floating down the springs, tumbling over mini waterfall ledges and then running back up to the top for another go. And of course never wanting to leave. Heaven!

Harry was very keen to see bats so we headed down in to the caves of Cutta Cutta, to see the rare ghost bat and lots of stalagmites and stalactites. With no airflow the humidity got up to 100% but worth the sweat to see another natural wonder – not cold but pretty cool!
