Hi to all the NT Ozstocers. Ros and I (from Sydney) are doing the big ride around Oz on our ST1300 and are currently taking a pit stop in your fair city of Darwin. Probably not enough time to meet up but we thought we would say Hi anyway and let you know we have been here as I suspect not many Ozstocers come this way.

Here is a YouTube Clip from our Blog cruising along some of your great roads.

Hope we can meet up down south some time.
Cheers
Dick B and Ros

Hi Dick and Roz.  It's great to hear from you.   What a wonderful video clip which brings back memories of my own ride along the same route last year.  Continue to enjoy all that this great country has to offer, and savour every minute.

We might just take you up on that. It wouldn't be for a couple of weeks yet. We will keep in touch as we get closer.

Thanks Streak. You don't owe us anything but thanks for the invite anyway. Not sure what we are doing in your part of the world yet but will keep your kind offer in mind and let you know when we get closer in a few weeks.

No problem at all Dick. We are on a small acreage 8 minutes from the outskirts of Townsville. We have a spare bedroom or a large fairly private yard if your camping and want to pitch the tent. But we're happy to offer a room as its only Pauline and I, all the kids have flown the coop years ago.

If you're having a look around the area I'm happy for you to base yourselves here. Magnetic Island is worth a look as is Paluma up in the rain forest.

I'll PM you contact details and address in case you'd like to stay.

Cheers Dick & Ros, safe Riding.

Hi Wendy,
Sorry but we have been out all day and just got back and read your post. Unfortunately we are leaving tomorrow AM for Jabiru, then Mataranka, Three Ways, Mount Isa, Normanton, Karumba then Cooktown.
Hope we can catch up another time.
