Sandstone and River Walk
A more challenging walk along the shores of the East Alligator River, great for keen bushwalkers and adventurous travellers.
From the Bardedjilidji Walk, the loop passes sandstone rocks, pandanus-fringed pools, and along the shores of the East Alligator River.
You need to be fit to do this walk, and shouldn’t attempt it alone.
This walk is great for croc-spotting, but remember these ancient creatures are extremely successful hunters - please stay out of the river and pools!
Along the river look out for marrawuddi (white-bellied sea-eagle), which snatch fish from the river with their powerful talons.
Beat the heat
Heat stress and dehydration are very real dangers here. Take simple steps to keep you and your family safe. Temperatures are considered extreme once it reaches 36 degrees Celsius or above.
Carry at least four litres of water per person
Carry a first aid kit on long bushwalks
Be Crocwise: Croc spotting
- Make sure to observe all croc safety signs. Never enter the water where crocodiles are present.
