Jabiru on patrol at the waterfront

This jabiru or jiplyontong (in Tiwi), is one of a cluster which is on patrol near Darwin’s waterfront precinct. They’re part of the urban artscape but they’re also great for small children to ride or climb on. They were designed by Janice Murray from Milikapiti on Melville Island north of Darwin.

Storm clouds approaching

Late yesterday afternoon the storm clouds built up over the city but it all came to naught. A fairly typical scene at this time of year.
