Broome Part 2 : Kellie Vs Camel


I have just returned to Darwin after 2 glorious weeks in sunny Broome WA , which was pretty much the same as sunny Darwin NT except the locals reckon there are no crocs on the beach. This made Dave laugh when I told him so to be safe I just stuck a toe or 2 in the water’s edge then freaked out and ran back up the sand dunes .. like the tough bushwoman I am ๐Ÿ˜‰

We worked 6 days a week and had both Sunday’s off , which was when we decided to do our tourist crap. The first week we were taken to a couple of local beaches only accessible by 4wheel drive

Image

Price Point , 1/2 hour drive from Broome. They are planning to build a gas plant out here which the hippy’s and locals are not happy about . They have been camped out here for months protesting …

Image

Image

Next stop , the town beach where I thought Id use my creativity and pose with a rock ..

Image

And finally got a lift home in the back of a Troopy which was a slightly better version of my old one …

Image

The next Sunday was our last day in Broome. We decided to mark the occasion by going on a camel ride which I thought everyone in Broome did but apparently not. All the locals were like ” What do you wanna ride a bloody camel for ? You should go to the croc farm” to which I replied “What would I want to see a bloody croc for ? I live in Darwin!”

Anyway here are the camel riding pics , it was a gorgeous sunset ride .. Our camels name was Issacc just in case your interested ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ruby , Issacc and I

Awesome sunset

Adios Amigo’s .. oh shit that’s Spanish ! Sayin goodbye Territory Style !!

Crazy Pic of The Week


Image

My friends from WA , Kristy (pictured) and Leah found some of Darwin’s hottest bachelor’s !!!

Sorry I have not been very punctual with the crazy pics – they are supposed to be published weekly and I think I have missed the last 2 weeks all together !! Well I do have my reason’s…

A) In order to write this blog I need to get out there and do shit so I can write about it .. otherwise I may as well just post link’s to a NT tourism site and be done with it ..

B) I am still hard at work getting my event planning bizo up and running ( hard when everyone around you run’s on Territory Time ).

C) I have decided to take a fellow blogger’s advice ( Kathy from Reinventing the Event Horizon) who suggested after a post I wrote that I turn my stories into a book .. which isn’t quite happening yet however I have written 1034 words so far , so , you know , I’m on my way ๐Ÿ˜‰

As well as all this soon I plan to have a Vlog section of my blog which will basically show me , making a dick of myself , in front of the entire world .. lucky for me I’m willing to sacrifice my dignity for my art :p I also haven’t forgotten my promise (threat) to start publishing recipe’s .. this WILL happen as soon as I get my appetite back ( I have been a bit crook over the past few days – the last thing I felt like doing was cooking). So keep an eye out for Croc Kebabs and Roo Burgers coming soon …..

Ok so I probably sound like I’m taking on way too much at once but that’s how I roll .. Life would be too bloody boring otherwise ๐Ÿ˜€

I Have Been MIA – Sorry Guys , Here is My Excuse Note !!


Hello my long-lost fellow blogger’s ! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been a very slack girl in the blogging world lately and feel I owe it to you all (again!) to explain why .

First of all my two mates from WA arrived a week ago and I have been playing tour guide again. We have been to all the hotspots such as Litchfeild National Park and a few pubs on Mitchell street ( can’t remember which ones , the girls were feeding me double vodka’s … ). After a great recommendation by my mate Phil O’brianย  Monday and Tuesday saw us soaking up the awesome landscape and serenity on this really cool houseboat

Image

We floated along the Mary River for 2 days on this bad boy and I know you all wont believe me but I have NEVER seen so many crocodiles IN MY LIFE !! No shit there was one every 20 meters along the bank. The girls made a Kels Gone Bush video for my You tube and blog so I wont go into more detail lets just say you’ll find it quite amusing .. I did kind of take the piss out of the show Swamp People .. and made my first bush tucker recipe for you all to enjoy woo hoo !

As well as all this excitement I have just started my new company and website http://www.instyleeventsandpromotions.com for anyone who wants a gander ….. This has been taking up most of my spare time and if you do check out the site you will see I still have stacks of work to do .. but I’m getting there !

So I hope you will all excuse me for my absence – Dave and the girls fly out Sunday so I will be back in fine form next week to block out the pangs of loneliness I will no doubt experience come Sunday night ! At least I still have my blogging fam to catch up on ๐Ÿ˜‰ I cant wait to sit down and read all of my favorite blogs for 4 hrs solid !!

Before I go I would just like to ask am I the only one that has a thousand awesome ideas a day but absolutely no time to ever pull them off ??? Maybe I should sell them ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ll be back sooooooon !

Showing the Bro How its Done Territory Style …


Recently my favorite-only-brother came up to visit me. It was his first Darwin experience so I took it upon myself to be his personal tour guide. First on the agenda was a trip to the Adelaide river where we took a cruise to check out the Jumping Crocs

Todd with his first croc ….

Image

This one was a bit more active ๐Ÿ˜‰

Image

Check out the “jumpin croc dance”

Image

Moving on from crocodiles which to be honest is a relief as they are all I have had to write about lately !!

A few days after the croc cruise we headed off to spend the night at the Bark Hut Inn which is famous for being made pretty much entirely out of bark ( who’d of thunk it ????). It was built in the early days by this old guy called Terry Baldwin and a bunch of local Aboriginal people . Its history revolves around the buffalo industry and it remains pretty much the same today as it was back then which is why I love the place.

The pub also, like a lot of NT pubs, has a little hobby farm where you can find emu’s , snakes , buffalo , and a shitload of ducks. Here are a few pics of our trip to the Bark Hut including our roadside antics …..

On the drive to the pub we had to get through this massive cloud of smoke which was so thick I couldn’t see the road . It was the result of a burn off which is normal here as burning the grass controls bush fires (weird I know). The birds you can see in the pic are cheeky little shits and pick up burning sticks , dropping them somewhere else to start another fire .. so you need to watch those buggers !!!

Image

It took this pig a while to struggle to her feet but she made it eventually !! This was taken at the Corroboree Pub/Caravan park/Service station/General store …..

Image

We then decided to show off with the only fish we caught on this trip !! Check out the little girl below us , she ran in to pose with us and changed her mind at the last minute . I have no idea who she is.

Image

Yay we made it !! Out the front of the Bark Hut

Image

We are now officially in buffalo territory .. watch out after dark !!!

Image

The only safe way to drink and drive is to do it in a car with no motor ๐Ÿ˜‰ This is an old buffalo hunting car. I had to kick 2 little kids off to get this pic I hope you guys appreciate my effort !!!

Image

All my brother wanted to eat was road kill

Image

This snake was drinking water before I interrupted it – looks pissed off !!

Image

What every Aussie bar should look like ! I bloody love this place !!!

The Daly River Swimming Club


I was supposed to update you guys about my Adelaide River cruise but that will have to wait till tomorrow as this story is gold ๐Ÿ˜‰

A week or so ago 2 men found themselves in a very undesirable situation. They were fishing in the Daly River , NT not far from Darwin when the little fishing boat they were in capsized. They were stuck clinging on to the boat which they could not flip back over for 20 minutes before being rescued. Not such a bad situation except for the fact the Daly is home to some bloody big crocs .

Image

Croc caught in the Daly river late last year , pic NTnew.com.au

In fact at first these blokes were under the impression that the boat capsized due to hitting a log .. well it turns out that log may ofย  been a 3.5 meter Salt water croc who after the incident was found badly injured further up the river. It was shot by the police ( yay a win for us ! these crocs have been taking local pets lately , I want them gone !!).

After being rescued by local fisho’s the two men were awarded lifetime member ships to the Daly River Swimming Club – the only club in the world no one actually wants to be a part of !!

Darwin Before Dawn


Hi Guys ! Its been so long between posts and I miss my blog so much !!! I have been happily surprised with visits from friends and family in the last 2 and a half weeks so I have a lot of reading and writing to catch up on !

I will start with these pics I took a couple of weeks ago. I had dropped Dave off at the airport and was hanging around Darwin city waiting to start work. For some reason I thought it would be awesome to take photos of lights , in the dark , with an ordinary camera – oh yeah and I must also mention how shitty the flash is. So in a moment of what I thought was creative genius I took several photos thinking how awesome they would look and maybe I should change careers … then I loaded them on to the computer.

Lets just say if you were on acid you might agree I am a fucking genius. Otherwise you will probably just wonder if I was the one on acid that morning ……

Darwin Plaza

Image

Trees with lights …. Smith st Mall

Image

Traffic lights on Cavenagh St

City bus pulling into its stop

I can tell you right now , if Darwin had a coffee shop that was open before 630 am these photos wouldn’t exist ! And they call it a city .. pfft what ever

I will finish this off with a teaser for my next post , the day I took my brother to on the Adelaide River Queen ….

A Very Lucky Escape


Image

This pic was taken at Mandorah near Darwin. The bloke didn’t know at the time he was about to become lunch for this sneaky croc until after he was back on land.ย  Just goes to show its the ones you don’t see that are the ones you need to worry about.

Here is another bloke fishing oblivious to the salty watching him from just meters away …

Image

This guy below risked his neck for a $15 fishing lure.

Image

But this guy is definatly seeking a Darwin Award …

 

 

Watch out buddy !!!!

They bite ….
