Day 1

Darwin to Katherine, NT

  • Saturday 2 September
  • 342km
  • ABC Classic FM frequency in Katherine: 94.9

It’s been an easyish first day. As you can see in the picture above, Wolfy wasn’t too stressed. In fact she was in the car, ready to go, long before we’d even packed.

Heading south from Darwin – and taking an unexpected detour through Palmerston – the housing estates and out-of-town shopping centres soon give way to the open road and bushland as far as you can see.

We were expecting a procession of caravans and campers on the Stuart Highway today but it was quiet. The first stop was fish and chips in the pub garden at Adelaide River. They’ve got a croc all done up like Lenin in a glass box, and a stuffed bull – the sign assures you it’s the one used in Crocodile Dundee.

At Hayes Creek roadhouse there’s a stone in the shape of Australia – and someone’s even found a Tassie rock to put under it.

We’ve been listening to some of your playlist suggestions, with the volume cranked. Keep ’em coming!

Off now to investigate a concert happening in a cave. I’ll make you a video.

Oh and I’m doing my show from Katherine tomorrow morning. Better set the alarm…
