The coach picked us up from the hotel and, travelling along the Arnhem Highway, the first stop was the Adelaide River where we joined the Jumping Crocodile Cruise on the river.
The guides encourage the crocodiles to jump from the water by dangling pieces of meat in front of them
Watching these large, powerful creatures so close to the boat is an awesome sight.
We then continued on our journey into the Kakadu National Park.
A great way to have an introduction to the area is by air so we boarded a small aircraft for an overview of the sights in Kakdu.
|Airstrip at Kakadu|
|From the air we saw the Jim Jam Falls|
|and the Twin Falls|
|The ruggedness of the terrain is obvious from the air|
|We also flew over part of the Ranger Uranium Mine|
Back on terra firma we had lunch and were then ready to further explore the national park.
