Today I'm just taking a break from my quest for Sydney's best chocolates and other edible gems to tell you about Kakadu National Park, one of my absolute favourite places in Australia. Kakadu is so beautiful, wild, lush, and so iconically Australian... It's also the largest national park in the country, with plenty to do and see.
So if you're thinking of travelling to Australia, or if you're living here but planning an interstate escape for 2011, here are my Top-5 reasons to visit Kakadu:
1. The light and colours there are unlike anything else. So vibrant. Pure eye candy.
2. The landscapes are spectacular. Think savanna woodlands, waterfalls, billabongs, meandering rivers, scenic bushwalking.
4. The wildlife is incredibly diverse, from saltwater crocodiles and kangaroos, to buffalos and birds galore.
For more information, you can visit the Northern Territories' tourism website.
So tell me, dear reader, where do you go when you need to isolate yourself from the word, recharge the batteries and reconnect with your inner self? Does surrounding yourself with nature works for you?
