The highlights of my recent excursion to the Northern Territory were two interesting boat cruises. One was the Jumping Crocodile Cruise on the Adelaide River, and the other was the Yellow Waters Sunset Cruise. Both featured crocodiles, of course, and birds. Jumping crocs are pretty spectacular and not a little scary, but of the two tours I found the Yellow Waters cruise the more enjoyable, mainly because of the delightfully informal, friendly and very knowledgeable commentary by the tour guide who shared a great deal of interesting information on the plants, birds and wildlife of the Kakadu, and the relationship of the indigenous people with them and the environment.
I bitterly regretted not buying a new telephoto lens before going on the trip. I missed some great photographic opportunities.I did manage to take a few satisfactory photos. I hope you find some of these interesting:
