Other Things We Saw

Okay, I promise this is the last post about our Yellow Water Cruise in Kakadu. There's so much more to tell about our trip, and I need to get on to those other posts! But I couldn't help myself when I looked through my pictures and remembered some of the other beautiful sights we witnessed. So here's a taste of the non-crocodile and non-bird sights from that evening.
The lotus lilies were like huge bowls.

And those combined with the lily pads reminded me of a Monet painting.

We saw a tree snake and some strange tree fruit.

And there were awesome landscapes and beautiful wild horses.

This video will give you a taste of the peaceful cruise.

Going at sunset was probably the best decision. The lighting was amazing, especially reflected off Yellow Water Billabong. If you ever find yourself in the Northern Territory, I'd recommend the Yellow Water Cruise at the top of your must-do list! 


  1. The last photo is especially beautiful, and we also loved your crocodile pics. I am checking in again to ask your opinion about taking kids (ages 6 to 14) on the sunset cruise. They love nature and are generally well behaved, but I am sure adults without children in tow sometimes cringe when we all arrive for a tour or expedition.

    1. Thanks-glad you enjoyed the pictures. Though there were no kids on our cruise, I don't think it would be a problem at all to have them there. I probably behaved worse than any of them would...running all over the boat to get the perfect shot with all of my camera gear! I'm sure the jumping croc cruises are more popular with families (shorter, more "exciting," cheaper, etc.), but in our opinion, the Yellow Water cruise was the best thing we did in the Northern Territory (and one of the best things we've done in Australia).
