After a great night I head towards Darwin, a short ride to get there, stopped near Adelaide river for a great pie and then got to central Darwin. Temperature there was quite humid and as it was the wet season, lots of strong rainfall. But not as bad as I was expecting, you're still able to do some walks-around without getting drench every 5mins.. 2 cops show-up early morning while I was sleeping and wanted to get me done for "illegal parking" the fine was up to $700 (!!!) but thankfully the dude from the reception talk to them and say " no worries mate we got a french tourist here, he probably don't know the rules " The cops walks off and I quickly move to another place with a carpark! I can highly recommend the Chilli backpacker and the YHA just in front. Great place to stay, and secure carpark. They do have $10 jugs. Can't go wrong! I stay in Darwin for a few days, doing a few parties and exploring the city. The MAGNT : Museum or Art Gallery of Nothern Territory is absolutely amazing, I love aboriginal history and it was full of pictures, arts, and great stuff. A few hours needed there! While In Darwin I had 2 choices, either going south to Uluru, Adelaide and Sydney or Getting to Townsville and keep going south to Sydney, following the coast.. Either way I had to be in Sydney to catch a flight to Vietnam. I really wanted to go south to visit Uluru as it's kind of once-in-your-lifetime experience, plus, I had time and money to do so, but from another part I missed socialized and see more stuff, riding in the outback was great but you don't meet anyone on the road, I only stopped for fuel / pictures & food. Great for a few days but I needed a change. And wanted to swim also! The "new" Darwin, featuring some fancy residential buildings w nice restaurants. The laguna is the only safe place to swim, as all the beaches around are full of crocs I was surprise to see that the laguna wasn't free of entrance. Many backpackers come to Darwin and get to the port trying to get a job on a fishing boat, can make good money and get some "days". We (foreigners) need to work 3 months or 88days in a farm, food/meat factory or agricultural plant to be able to get a second visa and stay another year in Australia. That's also why I stay 4 months in Bunbury working in a meat factory. I needed both the days for my visa, and some money.
