I’m staying at the new Cicada Lodge, a beautiful base from which to explore Nitmiluk National Park. It’s the very end of the dry season so most of the Park’s massive waterfalls have dried up and the water levels are at their lowest. That said, the gorges and waterholes are still beautiful as we explore them with Kirt, our helicopter pilot. He takes us through the gorge to a stunning waterhole with its own plunge pool and small waterfall but unfortunately there’s no time for a dip. The water is so pure and we all enjoy a drink of it to cool down as we explore our surrounds. Nitmiluk is where we plan to shoot a dramatic waterfall scene and we have no shortage of potential locations to capture the required footage.

Next I’m off to Nhulunbuy in east Arnhemland, stay tuned for this next adventure … Kristi!
