Katherine - preparation before heading to WA
Katherine Hot Springs
We finished all preparation on the third day, and finally had time to visit the hot springs. The water was warm and very refreshing.We did not want to leave it. Nell made some progress with her swimming skills and we could see that she gets a lot of fun from it.
Katherine Botanical Gardens
Later on we visited Katherine Botanical Gardens and walked along the alleys. Some plants were very interesting. It was the dry season so lots of them were dormant and we could not fully see the beauty of the garden.
Before heading off we also decided to buy some beer. We had to show the driving license to enter the shop, and I felt like it was a war zone and this was just a liquor store. We are leaving Katherine tomorrow and heading to Western Australia.
