3000 Interesting Km Of Boredom


It all star­ted with Domi­n­ique and me think­ing that 3000 km is too long to drive. That’s when we looked into fly­ing to Dar­win, but we soon dis­covered that a one way flight is around 400 to 500 AUD. Far too expens­ive for our lik­ing. That same day we star­ted to make a little flyer, copied it and handed it out to back­pack­ers and put it up in hos­tels and inter­net cafes around Cairns. We didn’t actu­ally expect many people to call, but appar­ently there are loads of people look­ing for a lift to the Top End, as we got flooded with requests. Con­tinue read­ing

Indonesian Consulate — Darwin


The indone­sian con­su­late in Dar­win, Aus­tralia, is situ­ated just off Mitchell Street (the main back­packer street) on 20 Harry Chan Avenue. It is open for visa mat­ters from Monday to Fri­day 9.30 to 16.00. A two month visa sets you back 60 AUD and will take approx­im­ately three work­ing days. You will need a pass­port that is valid for at least another six months, two pass­port pho­tos and your flight itin­er­ary, show­ing that you have an onward ticket out of Indone­sia. The visa forms can be down­loaded before­hand on the con­su­late web­site. As always when deal­ing with embassies and con­su­lates it is best to dress prop­erly with long trousers and closed shoes, so you will not be refused entry! Con­tinue read­ing
