There are so many things to love about Darwin and the Northern Territory. You have probably viewed some of the reasons in my photography but I wanted to share more of my favourite bits by sharing some of the websites I love. Here is a bit of a mixed bag of my top sites including useful information on visiting ‘my’ town, interesting blogs from people with a great view of the world and some of my favourite local shops. Enjoy!
Local places I love (local being the Northern Territory!)
Corroboree Billabong (approx 1 hour from Darwin)
Mindil Beach Sunset Markets! (Darwin)
Yellow River Cruises (brilliant!)
Yirrkala Arts Centre (Arnhem Land)
Carmor plains air boat tours - quite probably one of the most fun things I have ever done
Deckchair cinema – one of my favourite things to do of an evening in the dry season
Alliance Francaise de Darwin – if I couldn’t be in Darwin I’d be in France and the Alliance soirées and french movie nights are my little piece of that!
Shops I love
Pinkhill Boutique (Darwin – amazing clothing perfect for the tropics This shop never fails me when I need an outfit!)
Elevated Boutique (Darwin – fantastic range of gifts, jewellery and clothing – supporting Australian artists and designers)

Artlandish Aboriginal Art Gallery – the connection and story behind my logo (check it out on my blog)

I think one of the most fascinating things about information is that the more you have the more you want. Travel is the same! And photography is like that for me too – no matter how many photographs I take I always need to take one more! This is why I love the web and bloggers – it’s like travel – there is always a new gem around the corner.
