Croker Island

Croker Island lies where the Arafura Sea meets the Timor Sea to the east of Coburg Peninsula. About an hour’s flight from Darwin, it is Aboriginal-owned land and, as such, a permit from the Northern Land Council is required for all visitors. Many Aborigines acknowledge Croker Island as the birthplace of the Rainbow Serpent – one of the most important spiritual beings in tales of the Dreamtime. Its landscape is flat, covered with tropical rainforest and fringed by sandy beaches and coral reef. Birds such as brolga and jabiru are abundant, and anglers flock to try their luck with Croker’s many species of tropical fish. There is one general store on Croker Island, and supplies are flown in once a week from Darwin.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. 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.
