The Crocodiles of the Adelaide River


The Adelaide River has about 6-7 thousand crocs living in it. The females use the phragmites grass along the banks as nesting areas, the males are quite territorial choosing sections of the river to defend. That makes it easier to identify them once you know a section of the river, our guide has named the crocs along the stretch of river that he’s familiar with.

You can see the crocs coming. At first they look like floating logs by the river banks and then through the muddy, murky water you can see eyes. Just eyes, in a V shaped ripple heading towards you.
