Throughout Kakadu National Park you wil lfind rivers, streams and still water areas which may (or may not) be home to a residency of crocodiles. Admittedly, some of these may be freshwater crocodiles but in many areas they will be saltwater crocodiles (or salties). These denizens of the water can be the torture of an area but are definitely the kings of these waters.

The Saltwater Crocodile is the world's largest reptile and can be found on the northern coast of Australia and in inland waters for up to 100 kms or more. They can grow to lengths of 7 metres whilst a good average is 4 metres. Whatever the size, they are NOT human friendly and should be avoided at all costs.

Please review the website below for appropriate cautions when within saltwater crocodile areas.
