My driver has returned from New Zealand.
Mella is wearing new 'shoes'.
Farewell to Dave and Judy and to Darwin.
Hello Jabiru, Kakadu National Park.
It is early Saturday morning.
The flames are working their way through the undergrowth and tidyng up the forest.
These interpretation panels at the Bowali National Park Head Quarters explain the purpose of forest fires to the Gukberlerri (aborigines)
I am co-pilot for this sunset flight.
It seems strange to us to find a mine like this within - but technically not inside - a national park.
The flight takes us over the Arnhem Land plateau.
We would need a permit from the Northern Land Council - which represents the indigenous people - if we wanted to venture in to visit Arnhem Land.
Then west - the East Alligator River with a managed fire patch...
We are sleeping in the belly of a crocodile tonight.
