Our 4WD leaving Darwin


Adelaide River - home of the Jumping Croc tour


Fun with a python before the tour


Saltwater croc

Swimming in the Adelaide River is suicidal

The crocs really do jump




A lot of birds fly over the Adelaide River

I gave the didgeridoo a whirl... didn't do well

Kangaroo stew - delicious


An extremely large termite mound

A lizard finds its way to John's hat


Another swimming hole, fed by waterfalls high above Kakadu


A dingo ate my baby!

Great Barrier Reef photos


Dive buddy Kevin with some massive coral

Giant clam





If only we had enough air to really go in here... stranger than fiction
