Adelaide River ( Arnhem Highway )

The stunning Adelaide River snakes its way south from the Van Diemen Gulf at Djukbinj National Park to the Adelaide River Settlement on the Stuart Highway. The river is best known for its exciting ‘jumping crocodile’ cruises. Just an hour’s drive south of Darwin, turn left at Beatrice Hill on the Arnhem Highway and follow the signs to any of several ‘jumping crocodile’ theme cruises. Watch crocodiles being fed and encouraged to jump high in the air. The river is also home to a multitude of unique birdlife. The Adelaide River settlement is situated on the banks of the river, 114 kilometres south of Darwin. The scenic village has a rich history. During World War II the area was the site of a major military headquarters.

Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
