During the dry season the platform at the river-crossing from Kakadu into Arnhem Land (aka Cahill’s Crossing) is a fantastic and popular place to watch crocodiles in action. The best time to see them here is at high tide. A tide over six metres pushes up over the crossing, bringing bait fish like mullet and barramundi, and the crocs move downstream to wait for these treats.
So when do we arrive ? Yes, low tide so no crocs this time but we do spot a red Mitsubishi that got washed of the crossing and is now a permanent reminder of what not to do at Cahill’s Crossing.
