D ar w in S un , - P ag e 8 - 25 C M Y K RRIDING on the wave of success of2008, and in its second year in its new home at the world-class Darwin Convention Centre, the 2009 Darwin Boat Show boasts more depth and diversity and some great new features for visitors to enjoy. Don't miss the chance to explore the big range of new boating, camping and outdoor products on display at the show, and to enjoy the opportunity to listen and learn from experts on all aspects of boating from the latest electronics and safety accessories, to the secrets of how to reel in the 'big ones'. The boat show is your chance to inspect and compare a big range of different craft and to fully consider the right boat for your lifestyle and situation. Take advantage of the 'Choosing the right boat' checklist in the Official Boat Show Program, in the Trading Post Thursday, October 15, to assist your choice and don't hesitate to discuss your thoughts and needs with the experts on the floor. Join in presentations by some of Australia's best champion fishermen on each day in the Marine Safety Boat Show theatre, and there's fish filleting and cooking demonstrations, not to mention the dramatic boarding display each morning by the crack Australian Navy team that protect our waters every day from poaching and invasion. If you're into loading up the cartopper on the 4WD or camper-trailer, then you will love the big range of car-toppers and camper-trailers on display. Or if you're looking to finish of the days fishing with a barbecue, swim, or spa on the patio, then check out the spas and pools. There's a load of great prizes on offer, and so much to see and do for the whole family, so come on down this weekend, but check out the options for access and parking on the boat show website before planning your trip. We have lots to make your visit easy and enjoyable. WWaallkk tthhee SSkkyywwaallkk!!

A visit to enjoy the slides at Lake Leanyer is just one way you can beat the heat this wet season There is no way to deny it; the temperature is rising across the Top End. So, before the build-up really hits you, why not prepare yourself so you can cope with the Wet this year in relative comfort and ease. Here are just a few ways you can beat the heat this wet season. Think about investing in a pool for your backyard it can significantly increase the value of your home, gives your yard a great and practical feature and can be used to entertain guests when the heat arrives. To keep cool indoors, upgrade or purchase an airconditioner for the often used rooms. It too adds value to your home and most retailers have airconditioners for sale that not only keep your house cool, but have a high energy rating, meaning they will not hit your power bill as much as you think. If your home gets too hot to handle, how about a family excursion to one of the cool areas around Darwin. The wave pool at Darwin Waterfront and Leanyer Water Park are guaranteed to be two "hot spots" for families when those temps starts to rise. Others include the Casuarina, Parap, Nightcliff or Palmerston swimming pools or take a day trip down the track to enjoy a dip in Berry Springs and its surrounds Take a trip down memory lane and pull out the old sprinkler system and kiddie pools. Jumping through a sprinkler or lying in a small pool can be enjoyed by the old and young alike. For a quiet, relaxing way to get cool, jump into a cool bath or shower. It can provide amazing relief, cooling your body 25 times faster than cool air. There are plenty of other places to visit that can keep you cool. Why not see a movie at CMAX or Birch, Carroll and Coyle, start your Christmas shopping with a visit to the Mitchell Centre, Casuarina Square, Palmerston Shopping Centre, Oasis Shopping Village, Coolalinga or Howard Springs, or even visit your local library, all are fitted out with airconditioning. Water is an absolute must to feel fine this wet season. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids to keep your body hydrated and cool, but remember alcoholic drinks do not count, as alcohol and caffeine dehydrate your body, so cut back on the afternoon beers!
