Kakadu

Kakadu was so cool! I definitely recommend it.

I did a 3 day unleashed safari tour which meant that we roughed it a bit but it got rid of all the softies and was a bit more adventurous.  We slept in swags under the stars – my first time in a swag – I thought that was great.  Our tour took us first to the Mary River Wetlands where we did a boat cruise and met the local saltwater and freshwater crocodiles, then into Kakadu itself which is apparently the same size as Switzerland.  Don’t expect to arrive at the gates and see stuff – there are hundreds of kilometres to cover between attractions.  First stop was Ubir which is famous for its ancient Aboriginal rock paintings and views out over Arnhem land.  Absolutely stunning.
