If you get there about half an hour before high tide then there is a good chance you will see some crocs at the crossing, jaws open, hoping for an unlucky fish to jump in. A couple of brave (stupid) photographers will no doubt get within a few metres of a waiting croc to get the 'money shot'. That is entertaining in itself as you are not quite whether it could end in trouble for the photographers.

If you are happy to sit and wait for feeding time when the tide rises its a great place to see the crocs looking for food and then catching it as the fish swim over the road with the tide. Keep out of the water as we saw a few big ones.

Read lots of reviews about this place. We’d been to Ubirr and got to Cahills Crossing about 40 minutes before high tide. It’s a good place to stop, have a rest and take it all in. We saw a croc in no time. People on the opposite bank we’re still fishing knee deep in water! Good to see cars and road trains crossing - rather then than me! A tour boat and fishing boat were hanging around for a while which was a bit annoying as it spoilt the peace and the view. We saw about three crocs in total but more it’s a place to just chill, watch the river from the viewing platform and take it all in. And have a rest if you’re busy sightseeing. We stayed about an hour. You can see more crocs closer up elsewhere but if you’re near here it’s definitely worth taking a quick detour

If you aren't interested in seeing crocodiles you might find this boring. We were there around July 20th so it was winter time but still very warm, 97. Unless you are there when the tide is coming in you won't see much action, a few crocs and some very stupid people fishing, some in the water on the road. Looking at the folks fishing and their gear they appear to be local or at least Australian. Most of these guys had beers in hand while fishing, not something I would do with 5 meter crocs lurking nearby but it's their life. Took my daughter down off the viewing platform to the road to see it up close but staying far enough away as to be safe. This is no place to take chances either on foot or in cars. Other than the crocs not much to see and take bug spray.

Great place to sit and eat lunch if you want to spot crocs. Water is a very interesting colour as well. Just be croc wise as this is a well know croc area. Crossing is interesting as well to spot the cars that didn’t fare so well.
