In Darwin today we went to a museum with photos and information of Cyclone Tracy. There was a dark sound booth room with sound affects of what it would have been like to be there when the cyclone hit Darwin. We also saw a sculpture of one the longest, most aggressive and deadliest crocodiles ever to be caught in Australia. The croc was named 'sweetheart' and was 5.1 metres long, and weighed at 780kg! 

That night we went to the Mindel Beach Markets where we watched the amazing sunset, watched a fire show then I had a go of a whip, and the man who was running the show taught me how to crack it. It was so much fun, so I decided to buy my own whip. 

The next day we went to a free water park in Darwin. There was a water play park, a toddler splash pool and three big water slides. One of the water slides was 103 metres the next one was 105 metres and the longest one was 125 metres and it was pitch black. When you went on the longest one you had to go on a big inflatable thing with one other person. After the slides we went to the water play park and went underneath the big bucket which splashed loads of water on us. We had so much fun!
