The Darwin/Kakadu region has lots to see and do. We went on our first chopper ride In Katherine over the gorges. That was pretty amazing.
Mataranka is a good place too. We stayed at the Mataranka Homestead which has a thermal pool.

I have done blogs on things to do in Darwin and Kakadu that might be of help.

We are debating at home if we can fit everything we need in medium size backpack. Those big ones will be way too inconvenient, for me anyway. I am short and i dont want to tote along a bag which is as big as i am :)

Aussirose, those thermal pools sounds fantastic! I have to be careful or we end up spending our whole years budjet in month in Australia!

If you're looking at backpacks, can I suggest you look at the Osprey ones if they're available where you are - they make a range called Farpoint (and a women's fit variant called Fairview), we have a 40 litre one and I think it's ideal. I think these are also made in various sizes like small / medium / large to fit different body sizes.

If you're going to be carrying it a lot, it's important to know it's comfortable. Load it up with some weight in the shop and walk around for ten minutes - same for any bigger ones which may tempt you. If it's uncomfortable after ten minutes you'll hate it after a few months! :)

Thanks for the tip about Osprey, they looked good on internet so i might end up buying one if it feels good on back too :) another one which i considered was Deuter, do you have any experience on those?

I know the Deuter name but I don't know their range or if they do travelpacks as well as hiking backpacks.
