Once again, we decided to go off the beaten path… up north to Darwin, where you can find the largest proportional population of indigenous Australians of any Australian capital city. Just over 100,000 people live in Darwin making it one of the least populated cities in the Australian continent.
Saltwater crocodiles are so common here, more than 80,000 of them roam the waterways of Northern Australia, sometimes on the beaches. Yet you rarely ever see them. They bask in the sun during the cooler months but when it's warm, they bury themselves in the mud, under the trees in the shade.
Well, we'll have to find a way to see them, don't we? It’s too dangerous to go looking on our own, so we joined a Jumping Crocodile Cruise where the local guides entice them to leap out of the water!
I'm not kidding! Watch!
