“We had an awesome trip to Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia. Kakadu is a really special place – UNESCO Heritage listed for both its cultural and natural offerings. It’s an amazing mix of wetlands, rivers, dry scrub, open canopy forest, and escarpment. We saw an array of wildlife ranging from birds, bats, snakes, spiders, fish, crocodiles and wallabies. Kakadu is also home to many important and sacred spaces to the indigenous population. We included a few photos of some of the rock art, but chose not to take photos of rock art telling Dreamtime stories.
PoP t-shirts travelled to the top of Gunlom Falls to swim in the pools, climbed to Nawurlandja Lookout to gaze at Burrunggui/Anbangbang and the Arnhem Land escarpment at sunset, and trekked to Nanguluwurr art site to see drawings dating back more than 20,000 years. There are things we couldn’t photograph, like being out on the wetlands with a guide at night, and the stars so bright we could see them in the water and they lighted the way.”
