Douglas River Esplanade Conservation Area, NT
In the morning we had a look at the historic Springvale Homestead, the oldest cattle station in the Northern Territory. After shopping and refuelling in Katherine we drove to the Douglas River Esplanade CP. Unfortunately the nearby Tjwaliyn (Douglas) Hot Springs Park and Butterfly Gorge Nature Park were still closed, as they seem a great place to camp and relax. Instead we went for a walk along the Douglas River to view “The Arches” and rapids.
