Judbarra National Park here we come, we turned right & Ben kept going straight ahead on the Victoria Hwy towards Katherine, then onto Lorella Springs. Our plan is to go to the Humbert track turnoff, go through Top Springs & head to Dunmarra on the Stuart Hwy. The yellow marking on map below shows our track out to Top Springs & beyond.
We called into Bullita Homestead, quite a lot of history & interesting stuff, a massive big boab steals the show. We camped up at Humbert Top Yards not far from the turnoff. It took us approx 4.5 hours to go 48klms so it was a slow & scenic drive, the boab tree markers along the way were cute and we did see a few critters along the way. Next morning we left the National park & drove through Humbert Station & over the Humbert River, I managed to get a pic of a wallaby having a drink. Saw quite a few wedgetails along the way, such an amazing bird, I do feel sorry for their morsels but at least is is usually road kill.
Got to Dunmarra roadhouse/caravan park, we stayed 2 nights, did some cleaning & washing etc, the guy who owns this place is a friend of Ben’s & we were able to leave our boat here for 5 days last year on route to Tiwi Islands so we make an effort to stay here when passing through, it is also very reasonably priced & quiet although very busy.
