While I was still waiting on my front sprocket to show up, I took a quick trip out to Kakadu National Park.
There’s Aboriginal rock are all over in Kakadu…over 5,000 sites are spread across the park. The act of creating the painting is more important than the painting itself, so often times, you’ll find spots where new paintings are on top of the old. It’s also interesting to see how the style of painting has changed over time – the older paintings are usually much more basic, and with only a single color of paint.
Aside from the rock art, Kakadu is also very well known for its large and diverse animal population
What’s been the most interesting animal to see here is the saltwater crocodiles. I’d never seen anything like this outside of captivity before now, and it’s definitely a bit intimidating to see them in the wild.
Just up river from these guys that are fishing are some crocs that are also fishing…smart…
Tomorrow morning, I’ll head back to Darwin, and either be thrilled that my front sprocket has shown up, or pissed off because my front sprocket has not shown up…lets hope for option A.
