The long way round – from Zurich to Katherine

Darwin Beach

Journey to Darwin

On 2 December 2017 I flew via Singapore to Darwin. In Singapore I had a short stay at the airport before my flight to Darwin. In Darwin, I was through passport control in 30 minutes. The taxi ride to the hotel took about 15 minutes.

Exploring Darwin

Darwin is the capitol of the Northern Territory of Australia. If you take a hotel in Darwin CBD, you can explore the city on foot. Within 10 minutes walking distance you are at the Darwin Waterfront or the Esplanade. There are lots of bars and pubs on Mitchell Street.

Hit the road

On 5 December 2017 I took over my rental camper. On the first day I drove to the Corroboree Park Tavern where I spent my first night in the camper. On the morning of the second day I decided not to go further into the Kakadu National Park but directly to Katherine. After a drive of 352 km I arrived at the Katherine Holiday Park. Katherine Holiday Park is a beautiful resort. My next stop is Lake Argyle. To reach it I leave the Northern Territory and come to Western Australia.

See ya!

I’m a traveller obsessed with diving and loves hiking.

I was born in 1986 in Switzerland. I grew up in a city 15 km outside of Zurich.

In 2011 I started diving, because I was invited by my parents to the Maldives. I have made my PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water certificates in Switzerland. As a certified scuba diver I’ve already experienced the thrill of exploring parts of the underwater world, but there’s more to discover.
