John is in every sense of the word a bushy… a man who loves getting away from city life to spend much needed time off the beaten track in the Australian bush.
It has been a life long dream of John’s to visit Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory… so he approached Brokerage Coordinator John Swiatek to help him organise a trip of a lifetime.
John Swiatek enlisted the support of the team from National Travel Bendigo and Community Facilitator Glenn Mildren to plan an 8 day itinerary that covered a large part of Australia’s top end and national parks.
The first two days were spent in Darwin before the boys headed west to Kakadu National Park and then onto Arnhem Land. Loving every minute of the trip, John embarked on the Yellow Water Cruise. This beautiful billabong is home to remarkable scenery and wildlife such as jabirus, brolgas & the silent & sneaky crocodiles.
Walking around Kakadu John and Glenn got to experience the forever changing vista, aboriginal rock art and the varied flora and fauna that Australia’s top end has to offer.
Next the two gents went to Katherine for a two day stay. John & Glenn enjoyed an amazing, two hour, Nit Nit Dreaming cruise up the river and through Katherine Gorge.
The last two days were spent at the very picturesque Lake Bennett Resort before heading back to Darwin for a tour of the Docks and the Military Museum before their return trip to Victoria. By all accounts this trip has definitely been a trip of a life time for John and the realisation of his life-long dream.
Interchange Loddon-Mallee Region would like to acknowledge the assistance of Tess & the team from State Trustees for their assistance in making this trip of a life time a reality for John.
