Around Darwin - near Wagait Beach

This time last year I was staying with a friend at Wagait Beach, which is across the water from Darwin.  It is quite a pretty almost rural area, so peaceful.


I went over to Darwin on the ferry on a couple of occasions and had a look around the city and visited the markets.






There is a great difference between high and low tide, so each day the scenery on the waterfront changes.  When there is bad weather the short trip between Wagait Beach and the port area is quite a challenge I am sure - but it is a very long way to drive compared to the short journey across the bay on a boat.

It is a very beautiful part of Australia and I am keen to return again and stay right in the city to get a good look around.  Perhaps a visit mid year would be great as one would escape the heat and humidity that is normal for most of the year.
