Ubirr, home to some of the world's most outstanding Aboriginal rock art, depicting sources of food, wildlife and the creation ancestors. The panoramic views at the top show surrounds of Kakadu National Park, the East Alligator River and Arnhem Land, a view that is favoured at sunset.
Great place to view ancient artwork and to climb the top of the rock to view the open country side.Can easily spend a few hours here taking in the scenery and the history.

The Salthouse is located overlooking beautiful Emily Bay at the Kingston Historic Area. It was built in 1848 and was extremely important to the survival of the penal settlement. There were no refrigerators so the salt was essential for preserving the meat products.

A must stop! We’ve been to this region so many times and only just discovered this spot! The rays are unbelievable-some are massive and so friendly. If you’ve never pet a stingray, you must! A few other visitors brought fish to feed the rays and it made all the difference.

I found walking through the gully created by the erosion caused by the mining for gold very exhilarating with many photographic opportunities.

The coastline in this area has always been challenging for sailors...the sweeping expanse of the 90 mile coastline means there is no where for them to find shelter. The Trinculo was grounded in 1879 but they say that immediately next to it is another vessel- The PS Paynesville. The Paynesville was an iron framed, wooden planked paddle steamer and it was grounded in 1881. You will not see the second vessel as it's completely covered in sand. The interesting bit about the Trinculo though is that with each visit you make to it... you are never quite sure how much will be exposed. It will depend on the conditions at the time... which makes it an interesting place to repeat visits to. If you are into photography... this location is a gorgeous location to play with your lenses. :) I can only imagine what a serious photographer could do with their skills. Well worth stopping in to see the Trinculo... and the stunning 90 mile beach.

Not far off the Oodnadatta Track the Strangways Springs Walks are definitely worth a visit. We obtained a leaflet describing the three different walks and decided to go and look at the settlement first of all. It gives you an insight to the very harsh conditions these pioneers endured. We had only just looked at the old telegraph station and other nearby ruins when we could see a huge dust storm rolling in over the plain towards us. We started high tailing it back to the car park. It was such a shame as we had intended to have a good look around and do the Mound Springs walk as well as the Woolwash walk. Oh well, looks like nature still has full control out here in these parts.
