I cannot wait to get back to Darwin tonight because the dry season has arrived and there's so much on that you just don't know what to do with yourself half the time. Tomorrow I'll be going to about 13 events I reckon. The Laneway Series is back on at Austin Lane in the middle of the Darwin CBD. It just comes alive with music, dance and couple of beers. The Indian community will be putting on their annual India@Mindal celebrations on 23 June. The WHY NOT dance festival is on 2 June. That's right, I will be going boogieing away tomorrow! That's down at the George Brown Botanical Gardens, so don't let it be said we're not cultured; we dance at the botanic gardens. The North Queensland Cowboys will be visiting the capital of northern Australia when they play the Parramatta Eels in Darwin on 8 June. The Summer Session music festival is on 9 June. The V8 Supercars' CrownBet Darwin Triple Crown is on 15 to 17 June. I won't forget that the Greek GleNTi is on, which Mr Georganas has been to in the past. It's a fantastic event. The NT Orchid Spectacular is on at the Darwin Showgrounds on the 16 to 17 June. There is plenty to do up in the Top End. I invite all honourable members to attend.
