Changes to maps needed to reflect changes here to Eat and Buy places. Change to travel estimate from Darwin.
====From Darwin====
* <listing name="Airnorth" alt="QantasLink" directions="" address="" phone="+61 8 89204001" email="[email protected]" fax="" url="http://www.airnorth.com.au/" hours="" price="$138-306">One daily flight leaving at 10:40AM (Sa 7:45AM) NT time and arriving at 10:10AM WA time. The flight takes about 90 60 minutes if you work out the maths for the interstate time difference.</listing>
====From Perth====
* <see name="Mirima National Park" alt="Hidden Valley" address="Barringtonia Avenue" directions="a 10 minute walk from town " phone="" url="" hours="" price="$10 per car" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Though the park itself is huge, a small area close to town has been developed with walkways, information boards and a viewing platform. Often described as the mini Bungle-Bungles by marketing types in tourist brochures, it offers more diversity than just striped domes. It’s worth visiting at sunrise or sunset when the orange colour of the rock is at its most intense. An entry fee is payable into an often out of order ticket machine, but can be avoided by either walking in from town or parking out front (next to the cemetery) and walking the 500m into the park.</see>
* <see name="Sleeping Buddha/Elephant Rock" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Named ''Carlton Ridge'' on maps, but fancifully called the Sleeping Buddha by locals, this meandering outcrop is said to resemble a slumbering Buddha or an elephant depending on your viewpoint. Kelly's Knob lookout or Celebrity Tree Park are ideal spots for a good view of the Buddha, and the elephant with its trunk dipped into the water is best seen from Packsaddle Rd or a boat on the river. An excellent view is had from the jetty at Zebra Rock Gallery on Packsaddle Rd.</see>
===Surrounding areas===
* <buy name="Kimberley Fine Diamonds" alt="" address="93 Konkerberry Dr" directions="" phone="+61 8 9169 1133" email="[email protected]" fax="" url="http://www.kimberleydiamonds.com.au" hours="" price="">If you have a bit of style and a pile of cash, a piece of hand crafted jewellery featuring rare Argyle Pink Diamonds could make a unique souvenir.</buy>
* <buy name="Zebra Rock Gallery" alt="" address="410 Packsaddle Rd" directions="" phone="+61 08 91681114" email="[email protected]" fax="" url="http://www.zebrarock.biz" hours="8AM-5PM daily" price="">Lithophiles can find polished stone sculptures and jewellery in a myriad of shapes cut from a banded siltstone hyperbolically dubbed Zebra Rock by locals. The rock was discovered in 1927 and is claimed to be unique to the Kimberley. Some of the bowls, vases and geometric paper weights might look more interesting than the type of things you get at Ikea. The Gallery also stocks a good range of Kimberley books and guides about the Kimberley. At the workshop you can watch the sculptors at work and buy bags of assorted rock pieces to make your own creations. Make sure to buy a mango smoothie, talk to the birds and feed the fish at the jetty on the Ord.</buy>
* <eat name="The Durack Room Steakhouse/Sails Bar &amp; Bistro" alt="" address="50 Casuarina Way" directions="" phone="+61 8 9169 1092" url="" hours="5PM-11PM daily" price="Mains $22-35" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">These two restaurants operate at different times of the year from the same property.
