    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

    Photos are great. All very recognisable to me. I have a photo of a two seater plane which landed across the road from Hells Gate roadhouse, & was pushed across to the bowser to fill up with normal super. The geckos like you saw in Katherine are a constant here at Moreton. Loved Cahills Crossing , we spent many hours there croc watching on the turn of the tide as they fed on mullet crossing the causeway. The usual 'Beware Large Estuarine Crocodiles' sign on the left just behind you out of shot said 'Beware Very Large Estuarine Crocodiles' & they were! Crossing into Arnhem Land is something we are yet to do, but is high on the wish list. Loved camping by the Nicholson River near the weir at Doomadgee before taking the 'back way' on station tracks down to Lawn Hill & Adels Grove (where we worked as dishwashers for a couple of weeks). Interesting 'rock' shelves on the beach at Karumba & great sunsets as you show, but Karumba itself didn't do much for us. Different if you have a boat & fish though I reckon.

    Seeing your pics brings back so many good memories, has me looking forward to more 'post Cape' travels. Revisiting places is always different to first time around, but what it lacks in terms of 'discovery' is made up for by the pleasantness of 'familiarity'.

    Coming into Arnhem Land just after Cahill's, you think you're just entering heaven, there was a huge wet land with lillies in it and magnificent rock formations, we thought 'bloody hell, no wonder they don't want anyone in here' . But of course after a little while it reverted back to how it was pre Cahill's crossing, still great, but not as stunning.

    Our, or maybe my most important destination was Garig Gunak Barlu NP. Not alot more south than the 'tip', but much less trampled. The full time Ranger is a local. Great guy, really super friendly, knew so much about the area, wish we could have stayed to speak with him some more.

    Gee we struggled with the humidity, everyday at least 50% and mid 30s. Then one of us began getting constantly hammered by midgies. Them and the humidity and we had to retreat south. I would love to go back there one day.

    The Ranger showed us where a 4M salt croc likes to take a break and swim in a fresh water hole near the campgrounds. Didn't see him at all, but when leaving early that morning, we saw he had visited the water hole that night, the slide marks are hard to miss.

    on the road....

    spent two nights at lorella springs.

    visited roper bar. For a very long time had wanted to visit it, not sure why? Must have read about it many years ago?? Anyway, there's nothing there but a community.
