Adelaide River Jumping Crocs – Darwin, NT

I am now back capturing some of my more memorable trips around the NT over the past few months. Adelaide River Jumping Crocs would have to be right up there. Located about an hour from the Darwin CBD right on the Arhem Highway where it meets the Adelaide River.


I was lucky enough to venture out on the Adelaide River Queen ( I kid you not).Image

For 25 bucks for an hour of watching these prehistoric beasts jump their body length out of the water to snatch a pork shop – I could not rate it highly enough.

The eerie sight of the crocodiles (or crocs if you are a true Territorian) suddenly appearing out of nowhere from the just below the surface of the muddy brown river water still freaks me out.
