Nitmiluk NP, NT
0 km (0.0 mi)

Today we paddled up Katherine Gorge and it was a lot of fun. We had to do these portages between the gorges, basically drag the canoe over the rocks. Got to do a lot of swimming in the water. Speaking of which, it is safe to drink. It was kinda weird just dipping your cup in the water and drinking the water.

Didn't see any freshwater crocodiles, just a lot of birds. You have to stay off a lot of the shores because that is where the crocs lay their eggs.

We camped at the start of the fifth gorge. Oh geez, Toto's "Hold the Line" just came on the radio, now I'm going to have that song stuck in my head. hold the line....bum bum bum bum
