Croc Spotting On The Mary River

Croc Spotting On The Mary River

posted in: Australia | 4

As part of a three day tour of the top end of Australia we visited the Mary River wetlands. The area is home to over 250 species of birds and has the highest concentration of salt water crocodiles in the southern hemisphere. We took a cruise on the Mary River and spotted an abundance of wildlife under a bright blue sky. From tiny frogs no bigger than a finger nail to majestic Jabiru birds with their double jointed knees. Large salt water crocodiles basked in the sun along the banks of the river as we cruised by.

Our tour was Buffalo Dreaming with Way Out Back, organised and arranged by Backpackers Word Travel.
