The Hickman's trip to Darwin!

We've just come back from a lovely 10 day holiday in Darwin. We stayed with Amy's sister (Catherine) and brother-in-law (Michael). It was my first trip to Darwin and it was great seeing what the Territory had to offer.

As well as spending time with family we got out and about a fair amount and enjoyed a weekend's camping in nearby Litchfield where we were all overwhelmed by the beauty of the landscape. We swam in creeks and sat under tumbling waterfalls. We did something new every day - Michael loaned us one of his cars - a powerful 4x4 which was fun to drive and allowed us to go to some off the track places.

The kids delighted in meeting their cousins (Josh, Camden and Emily) and even though there was many years between them Audrey and Eli had great fun variously teasing, playing with and cuddling them.

The weather for the whole of our stay was fabulous - 30-32 degrees everyday with a light cool breeze. We were sad to board the plane home (not least as it took off at 12.30am!) and head back to the cold Canberra winter.

Here's a short clip of some of our best pictures. They don't really do the beauty of the place justice.
