The last time it was this hot 🌞 in December around here you could buy a house in Darwin for $30,000, says #bureauofmeteorology . The #TopEnd is experiencing extreme temperatures and Kakadu is no exception. ⠀
Our nearest town, #Jabiru , recorded its highest ever December #temperature on December 4 (39.7⁰C) then again on December 5 (40⁰C), and 6 (41.2⁰C) before finally reaching an apex of 41.6⁰C on the 7th.⠀
So to keep you safe during your visit to Kakadu, please remember to take lots of water with you and drink at least four litres a day 💧. Protect yourself from the sun with a broad-brimmed hat, long loose clothing and a high factor sunscreen 🤠. Wear sturdy shoes 👟.⠀
And always, always follow directions from park rangers - their directions are for your safety 👍.⠀

Starting the count down to a bit of time off !!! Where will you spend New Year? 2020 just rolls off from the tongue doesn’t it!!
How lucky are we up here in the Top End to enjoy these skies. 2020 is an amazing opportunity to invest in a better value system that first and foremost, cares for our planet. #Darwin#TopEnd#NT

A fine collaboration between @alicespringsbrewingco & @beaver_brewery will be tapped simultaneously at 5pm in both cities this Friday. I won’t be in Alice 😥 but will be at Beaver in Darwin at 5pm. If your in Alice or Darwin, head down 👍
The final pose from one of my feathered friends😕😢💚❤️
The Red Collared Lorikeets and the Red Winged Parrots have all disappeared to find food elsewhere. It’s very quiet now amongst the mango trees. But we still have the Curlews wailing at night and the Plovers squawking in the morning. Oh and then there’s the Blue winged Kookaburras bizarre laugh, and the screech of the Little Corella’s. Nature’s symphony at my doorstep!🎼😁
So blessed💜🙏 #redwingedparrot#birdsofaustralia#mangotrees#topend#abcdarwin#amazing_australia#ig_discover_australia
🇦🇺 Day 385 🤙
On our way to the Australian desert, we drove close to Bitter Spring and Mataranka Thermal Pool that natural hot springs. We just couldn't pass by without stopping. We loved so much those places the first time we went there. 💧 😊
🇫🇷 Jour 386 🤙
Sur notre route pour le désert Australien, nous sommes passés à côté de Bitter Springs et Mataranka Thermal Pool qui sont des sources d'eau chaude naturelle. On ne pouvait tout simplement pas passer à côté s'en arrêter. On avait tellement aimé la première fois que nous y sommes allés. 💧 😊
🏊 💦 Our main pool area, features two crystal clear spas that cascade into the relaxing plunge pool, then follow the stream through the tropical garden to the main pool (pictured here). Parents and kids will love the shallow end with wide entrance platforms, while a waterfall cascades down at the deep end.
Day 1219- Dec 10, 2019.
I picked up my new #topend racing chair yesterday- it fits (thank god! There are so many different measurements we had to get and send them). Thank you to anyone who helped with the purchase, I really needed this chair; it’s perfect and goes STRAIGHT without having to constantly adjust it while I’m pushing.
Today I pushed a new personal best speed of 14km per hour, and a Pb for my 45min training session of 7.3km which beat Sunday’s 6.6km....so it’s already proving it was a great purchase!
We are having an amazing time at #GWA#globalwheelchairathletics training camp. I’m learning so much about the importance of having a fitted chair, and making the slightest change in positioning can offer a great outcome.
Today I’m busy working on some concepts for larger paintings. There is a Cattle that I photographed in the Northern Territory and in the Kimberley at various cattle stations.
Comments welcome as always!

On a 43 degree day, you do your best to make the pastel and ochre hues of Ellery Creek home. ⠀
Something city folk won't understand; out here you give up convenience to have the entire world. ⠀
