Humpty Doo  Northern Territory

    •   Show me: a map of Humpty Doo

Although some regard Humpty Doo as a monument to a failed experiment to convert 300,000ha into a giant rice paddy, a growing number of Darwin commuters fancy the town as a laid-back residential alternative to the capital.

This delightfully named town, which lies just 50km south from Darwin along the Arnhem Highway toward Kakadu, missed out on the rice bonanza when water buffalo and waterfowl invaded the CSIRO’s experimental farm and floodwaters took care of what was left of the crop.

If snakes fascinate you, then don’t miss Graeme Gow’s Reptile World which displays 300 species of Australian snakes but if you and your camera prefer your reptiles in fancy dress, then the (big) Boxing Croc is your target.

Twitchers, too, are in their element here on Fogg Dam, which is a significant bird sanctuary, while the local United house of worship is known as the church with no walls.
