The trip from Moresby was in 1982 after completing a teaching contract.

I was up in Darwin as my wife is a high flying academic and was given
a job up there. We are back in Canberra as her old uni offered another
promotion to poach her back again. I started to get to rellay become
attached to Darwin and am still in contact with many of the people I
got to know up there. Make sure you visit the museum as you go past as
it has a lovely collection of traditional boats, including some proas
and outriggers and even a pearling lugger.
Hopefully if rob gets his tranpac going to schedule I may get to see
it on his return from Tassie after the sydney hobart cover.
