"Jabiru" Jabiru by 1+1

Jabiru Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 20 photos

On 24 April 2006 Cyclone Monica side-swiped Jabiru. Damage to infrastructure was minimal but a lot of trees came down. It still looks a bit of a mess in lots of places but cleaning up is progressing.

One loss for visitors is the shady area by the lake where people would picnic. Most of those trees are gone and it looks a bit like a construction site.

One plus is that with many trees missing the Crocodile Hotel is now more visible in it's shape as a crocodile. Maybe you should get a look before trees grow back and block the view again.

The photo above is pre-cyclone.

    Glad George didn't do you any harm, Zig. Jacob turned out a bit of a fizzer? Maybe we'll get the leftovers. First met those cane toads in T'ville in the 50's. A couple of years ago in Georgetown !! Ruddy pests! Sic 'em.
