We were picked up at our hotel by Garry with two 'r's' and told we needed two things, a sense of humour and our swimming gear, then after a forty minute ride in a minibus we were at the river cruise with the aim to see crocodiles, unfortunately non were awake at 8.30 am, nevertheless it was a nice ride up and down then river for forty minutes.
Next, 'morning tea', terribly English, scones, cream, jam and tea, etc.
Then, as per their literature, '4WD driving in our soft-top ex Army Landrover and then swimming, fish & turtle feeding at the beautiful Cassowry Falls'.
In reality this was a trip over mud tracks in a beaten up Landrover, fortunately not soft-top so that the hoards of mosquitoes were left outside.
Then out of the vehicle and told we were going swimming in a lovely private waterfall before going home.
In reality we struggled over wet slippery rocks to then be told to dive into the water as that was the only way in, fine for us, but not for a family from Melbourne who were not such confident swimmers. Garry had us swimming around the pool, diving from rocks etc, then he exited the water to get fish food which he threw into the water in front of the family who were clearly uncomfortable with the fish (possibly eels, yes we all saw them) splashing around eating in front of them. But to Garry's hilarity he continued to distress them with continued fish/eel feeding.
What they should tell you:
Bring an enormous sense of humour
Bring an enormous amount of mosquito repellant
Bring swimming shoes
Enjoy swimming in a small pool filled with fish/eels
