Tegan Henry’s Croc Encounter in Darwin
A once in a lifetime experience by Pulse Travel’s Tegan Henry 18th-22nd of June – read her amazing encounter as she comes face to face with the prehistoric creatures!
If you love the heat and adventure this is for you!
It all started with a conversation… where is somewhere that I haven’t been before and gives me everything I love? Warm weather and a bit of adventure came to mind so I decided to take a short trip to Darwin!
So I spent the next couple of days in hot and sweaty Darwin…. apparently this is winter!
We ventured out to Litchfield National Park and visited Florence falls which is a ‘safe croc free’ swimming area, it was nice and relaxing with the occasional dare devil jumping from the waterfalls. Next stop was Buey waterhole, the perfect place to pick a rockpool and set up camp for the day!
All that waterfall adventuring left us with a rumbling stomach so it was off to the Mindil Markets. Any type of food you are craving, you will find here, along with souvenirs and we even had a school choir singing some blues. Once we had made a decision on food we headed down to the beach for the sunset. People were set up with deck chairs and eskies ready for the sun to go down.
Next day it was off to Adelaide river to do a jumping crocodile cruise. The name says it all – these wild crocs sure do jump for their food and you get to see it up close and personal.
My favourite activity was definitely heading to Crocosaurus Cove and getting to swim with one of the crocodiles in a Perspex cage. It was pretty amazing seeing these creatures in their environment and how giant they really are.
