Goldfields, Falls and a Cruise

A bit of travelling today to get to our destination of Kakadu. First stop was at Edith Falls for a look, no photos as there really wasn't much to see the swimming holes were closed due to crocs. Pine Creek Goldfields was next.  The gold mine is no longer in use and the open cut filled with water but still interesting. 

We were then taken to a secret water hole for a swim.  I was so impressed we went 4WD in the bus complete with trailer!

This secret swimming hole was just beautiful... the water was still way to cold for me, hahaha!  Most of the Falls we've visited are spring fed so the water is crystal clear and very clean, this one was no exception.

We arrived at our accommodation in Kakadu around 3.00pm so we had plenty of time to settle in and have a coffee before we finished our day of sight seeing with a Sunset cruise on the Yellow Water billabong - Mary River. 

 Water birds, crocodiles, golden tree snakes, water lillies, pandanous trees... scenery is spectacular!
