Tom & I spent a few days doing a number of short walks in Litchfield, with a night on either side in Darwin before meeting up with the rest of the group
We then met up with 8 others from our bushwalking club to do two walks. The first walk was 8 days (7 nights) in Kakadu. We climbed up the escarpment at Jim Jim Falls, up Jim Jim creek for a couple of days, then cross country to Twin Falls Creek and a few days then walking down Twin Falls Creek to Twin Falls.
We were hoping to do an overnight kayaking trip up Katherine Gorge but the Gorge hadn't been cleared of saltwater crocs so there was no kayaking access. We did the 3-gorge cruise instead. Then we walked the Jatbula Trail over 5 days (4 nights). On return to civilisation we found the volcanic ash from Chile had disrupted flights and so we had a couple of unanticipated days in Darwin.
