Inspiration from your Surroundings...

Our latest travel expedition delivered us in sunny Darwin! A balmy, warm average of 30 degrees (celsius) greeted us everyday which was a welcome change from the chilly temps back home in Sydney.

The reason for our trip was to not only get away from Sydney for a couple of days but to watch my beloved Parramatta Eels play in the NRL (and they got a WIN). It was a great excuse to take a look around and gain inspiration from the surroundings.

Darwin is a magic place, really it is. There's a wealth of information and inspiration you can take from the many Indigenous Galleries/Historical spots, World War II Bombing Sites AND you can watch the sun set over the water (due to the direction Darwin faces)... which is pretty incredible for a tourist from any of the eastern states of Australia.

We took a trip out to Litchfield National Park which delivered exactly what I had hoped for... vibrancy via nature. The neutral palette of the scenery was calming and grounding and to be honest, brought me back to life.
