Hi guys,

The day started at 6:30. After getting all the stuff and doing some last grocery shopping, we left Katherine to go to Tennant Creek. After an hour, we stopped at Mataranka: the capital of Never never, the sign said. There we got to the thermal pools. These were natural hot water pools, this is ground and rain water that's been warmed by the inside of the Earth. It was such clear water and beautiful surroundings. In the middle of rainforrest! After a swim, we left to continue our journey. In a town called Jamaryah we ate something at a small hotel or bar thing, with a free mini zoo next to it. They had salt water crocodile, blue tongue lizards, and wallabies you could just pet! Really cute. Back on the road, we saw what looked like a fire, but when we neared it, it turned out to be a mini tornado of dirt, grass and flying stones! Also, we came by almost a hundred dead wallabies. So sad to see so much animals who found death on the road.
