Croc spotting at Cahills Crossing
Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, all visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.
During the dry season the platform at the river-crossing from Kakadu into Arnhem Land 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.
It’s an amazing sight that shouldn’t be missed!
