Child Australia Darwin Conference 10th October

I have recently returned from a business trip to the Top End, Darwin, in the Northern Territory. I had the great pleasure of speaking at the Child Australia Darwin Conference at the Darwin Convention Centre this month. I spoke about Preparing the Natural and Physical Environment: Sustainability in Practice.

As most of you may know, sustainability is a passion of mine. I take great joy in inspiring educators to foster natural environments, and sustainable practices at their services.

Kakadu dreaming

This is the life! (Questa e la vita) I decided to take a roadtrip through Kakadu National Park during my stay in the Top End. I travelled through Kakadu to the fringe of Arnhem Land, to a place called Jabiru.

As I drove, I reflected upon how the Indigenous tribes survived out here. Then I reached the Wetlands, and the array of wildlife that would have been a feast to the eyes and stomach.

Further into my journey, I come upon the sandstone caves, with the Indigenous Rock Art displayed like a museum. The caves provided a coolness to the midday sun. I now appreciate the true beauty of the Top End, and can respect the Indigenous culture, and their way of life.


My advice when staying in Jabiru, is to spend time at Anbinik Kakadu Resort It is a truly eco-friendly and inspiring environment in the heart of Kakadu.


Happy Walkabout!
