"Shady camp' site at Mary River



Decided to explore the Mary River region. A bit off the beaten track. 55 km off the Arnhem Hwy, partly dirt but well graded. Known for barra fishing. Picturesque spot at 'Shady Creek' Camp, under the Banyan trees. A barrage has been built to prevent salt water from venturing further inland, representing natural barrages which have been destroyed by feral and domestic animals. Guy and Hayden fished for afternoon while we 'croc spotted'. Alas, no swimming. Enjoyed another fish meal, followed by a night walk. $8 family per night
