Stop At: Adelaide River, Adelaide River, Top End, Northern Territory
Jumping crocodiles, also known as “salty cruises” or “croc tours,” are a popular tourist attraction in the Northern Territory of Australia, particularly in areas like the Adelaide River near Darwin. These tours offer visitors the thrilling experience of seeing saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitat, often luring them to the surface with bait before encouraging them to leap out of the water.

The saltwater crocodile, or “salty,” is one of the largest and most formidable predators in the world, capable of launching itself out of the water with surprising agility to catch prey. During jumping crocodile tours, operators entice these massive reptiles to leap out of the river using meat on a stick, giving tourists a close-up view of their powerful jaws and impressive athleticism.

Day 2: Kakadu to Darwin

Stop At: Jim Jim Falls, Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory Australia
Jim Jim Falls is one of the most iconic and spectacular waterfalls in Kakadu.
The falls cascade over a sheer cliff face, plunging into a deep plunge pool below. During the wet season, when water flow is at its peak, Jim Jim Falls is an awe-inspiring sight, with water thundering down the cliff and creating a misty spray in the air. However, during the dry season, the falls can reduce to a trickle or even stop flowing altogether, depending on rainfall levels.
Accessing Jim Jim Falls can be an adventure in itself, as the area is remote and only accessible by 4WD vehicles via a rough dirt track. From the car park, visitors must embark on a challenging hike through rocky terrain and monsoon forest to reach the falls. The hike typically takes around 1-2 hours each way, depending on fitness levels and weather conditions.
The surrounding landscape is breathtakingly beautiful, with towering cliffs, rugged escarpments, and lush vegetation providing a dramatic backdrop to the falls.

The trail leads to the main swimming area, where visitors can take a dip in the cool waters and relax amidst the tranquil beauty of the gorge. During the wet season, when water flow is at its peak, Barramundi Gorge is particularly impressive, with the waterfall cascading dramatically over the rocks.

In addition to swimming, Barramundi Gorge is also a great spot for picnicking, wildlife watching, and photography.
Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Yellow Water Billabong Cruise, Kakadu Hwy, Kakadu NT 0886, Australia
