Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

No-one comes to the 'Top End" of Australia for the shopping, restaurants, cafes etc! Visitors come to admire NATURE.
A 20 min drive gets you to Darwin's beaches and Mindil Beach, Nightcliff and Parap Markets. Palmerston Market is smaller but is a market for the locals so you won't meet any tourists here, only the multicultural mix which is so typical for the Top End.
A 20 - 30 minute drive south gets you to Humpty Doo Pub or Berry Springs Nature Park and Territory Wildlife Park.
Easy car access to Darwin, Kakadu National Park (about 300km), Litchfield Park (150km), Katherine(330km), Mataranka (400km). ( NOTE: Please do not underestimate distances here.) Excellent fishing, both river and saltwater.
Note: entering Aboriginal land requires a permit so is generally only possible on a guided Aboriginal culture tour.
You could fly over to Kununurra in West Australia to visit the Bungle Bungles in the Kimberleys, Gibb River Road or El Questro Station - at a price.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Smoking only on verandahs. Children over 10 yrs of age welcome but please consider that there is only ONE queen size bed in the second bedroom. The rollaway bed only for emergencies. Plant care involves checking timers on the sprinkler system, collecting palm fronds and putting them in bin provided. Limited non-simultaneous exchanges are possible as I often travel non-homelink.
