We spent the night at the Gagudju Crocodile Holiday Inn where the rooms are constructed to form the shape of a crocodile - Gagudju Crocodile Holiday Hotel - at Jabiru, a small township in Kakadu. Jabiru is named after a large water bird located in this region of Australia. It is a member of the stork family. Follow this link for additional information about the jabiru .
Next day at Nourlangie Rock we viewed more Aboriginal rock art and then visited the Warradjan Cultural Centre before going on a cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong to view the birdlife and look for crocodiles. As well as the jabiru there were a variety of ibis, egrets and cormorants, rainbow bee-eaters, ducks of many varieties and jacanas - small birds with large feet which walk upion the lily pads giving the illusion of walking on water.
