They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old.Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun and in the morningWe will remember them.LEST WE FORGET
This small tropical city has taken quite a battering over the last 150 or so years; first by the Japanese air force during the Second World War and later by Cyclone Tracy in 1974, which took 65 lives and devastated the city.
Come with us to the beautiful city of markets and beautiful sunsets where no one moves too fast in the heat or have a worry in the world… and usually finish a sentence with – ‘no worries mate!’
Kangaroos, goannas and a variety of birds all call this place home, but unlike Florence Falls, the real king in these parts is the fresh water croc… and apparently there’s one here that likes to nibble on backpackers… or so I am told.
With this period of uncertainty and the prospect of long days at home for so many people, treat yourself to some reading respite and log on to tassiesnowbirds.com

The Reynolds Track might be a short track of 44-kilometres, but we spent 3 very enjoyable days on an interesting and sometimes challenging track visiting some beautiful and less frequented waterfalls and camping at some beautiful campgrounds in a relatively unspoilt National Park.
This is one of our favoured destinations on the ‘Top End’ and as for the waterfalls and their swimming holes… well they just get better and better.
We have found some wonderful places on our travels that we continue to return to, and many more that continue to surprise us… but that’s what this country does best!
Sorry for the delay but stay tuned as we’ve now been travelling around the ‘Adventure Territory’!
