Last Saturday I was sitting in the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault module of my Lifeline counselling course (a bummer but a necessary one) and up on the screen, there was a slideshow of photos playing while the presenters were organising their talks.
The photos belonged to Ena, the utterly adorable Fairy Godmother woman who is one of the facilitators, and were of the Northern Territory. I was transfixed by them. Waterlilies. Lagoons. Paperbarks.
I got an email alerting me to a new YouTube campaign for the Northern Territory today. It’s a good one. Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y27TynhCp1M&feature=youtu.be
I really want to go there. I want to swim in these craggy red rock waterholes and witness the blackness of night. I want to feel the frontier vibe and the WWII survival of Darwin.
Northern Territory. Maybe the most interesting corner of the Australian backyard?
