Then we travelled on the Ghan to Darwin, stopping at Alice Springs and Katherine. It was a great trip and, despite having our own Mrs Marples on board (Brenda in a Lilydale Players production), no-one was murdered.
It was Brenda’s first trip to those destinations and the time in Alice and Katherine allowed for some serious snooping around. The highlight would have been the magnificent boat trip up the Katherine Gorge.
After Darwin we flew down to Broome and stayed three nights at Cable Beach. Broome was a fantastic experience, redolent with history and vista. Definitely a place to go!
