Aug 8, 2016 - Darwin to Mary River

Up the Centre 7.8.16 Darwin to Mary River 138km Not a long drive to Mary River, here about 10.30am. We are staying at Mary River Wilderness Retreat. This is our sort of park, trees, grass, ( they water from the Mary River ), and large caravan sites. Yes we are on the side of the river, back a bit this time, and once again high banks which crocodiles, we are told, don't climb. Decided to go on a boat trip up the river to do some crocodile spotting, as we hadn't seen any so far in the wild. Yes we seen about 12, a couple of bigger ones,...

Sep 21, 2012 - Mary River detour

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

Micheal Jackson did some tricks oh and Micheal Jackson was a crocodile and his friends Dusty, Lefty (had his left leg eaten by another croc), Brutus to name a few. On board the crocs jumped...

May 1, 2006 - NT: Katherine Gorge to Edith Falls

Up and out to Katherine Gorge. Because of flooding there's no canoing or swimming and the river is running pretty quickly. Only way to really see it is a boat tour - shuffle on, shuffle off with the tour bus crowd. The tour takes in the first two gorges which are pretty amazing, but the whole touring business is less fun when there's no adventure involved and you're on a group timetable. Guess we've been lucky not to have to do this type of sightseeing too much. The Gorge is beautiful and I've heard that when the waters are calmer it's...
