At the information centre it was suggested to us to go to this water crossing at flood time since than the crocodiles gather in order to cach some barracuda. We saw several from the platform, but they were not overly exiting to see.

Fabulous chance to view crocodiles in their natural habitat. Allow plenty of time and ensure you are there at high tide.

if there would be a category for the wonders of nature, this would be definitely in it. It is fantastic to watch the crocodiles lurking in the water, as they are waiting for the incoming tide that brings the barramundi.

We spent a couple of hours there just watching the water flow over the crossing & the two vehicles that didn't make it. Go to the viewing platform & have a look.
