All I wanted to see while travelling in the Northern Territories was a crocodile in the wild. Many of the places I visited had signs warning of crocodiles but after staring into the water hoping for a head to appear I hadn’t seen one. There were signs of them being around everywhere.
In the end I drove out to the deepest parts of Kakadu National Park hoping for a glimpse but it seemed like a wasted journey until suddenly a head appeared in the water and disappeared again. At that point it became very real, I took a step back from the waters edge as my heart raced. It was minutes before the head surfaced again slightly further away.
Have you noticed the bravery of the people fishing further up stream?
