Rock Art at Nourangagagagne

Cave - home for some

Croc or duck

Wow, Kakadu. What a diverse environment. A huge national park, with rocky mountain ridges, wetlands, billabongs, rivers, swamps and more. We visited Jim Jim Billabong when we arrived. A massive billagong covered mostly in waterlillies. Croc warnin signs everywhere. There is a patch the wild pigs have rooted up and we had to walk over. A great visit.

Then we checked into our digs at Jabiru. Nice place. The locals are decent and friendly, not like those in Tennant Creek or Alice, who are just hopeless. Here, they are nice and friendly and share information and speak well, are clean and have self respect. In fact this afternoon we helped a family that had broken down, they needed oil of all things and yes we had some in the car. There is everything in that car.

We went to Yellow Water and saw our first wild croc. What a buzz. It is a beaut part of the Mary River. Just lovely.

Then we went and walked to some Rock Art sites, how unique and amazing. It was Nurgangi rock.

This afternoon in 36 degree heat we went to the East Aligator River and saw 6 crocs feeding on the abundant supply of fish in the river. We were at the Cahills crossing where a man was taken by a croc a couple of years ago. We were up on a viewing platform - safety first!

Having trouble loading some of the photos.
