For two hours of very interesting commentary, outstanding scenery and heaps of crocs, take this tour. Terry and his mates have centuries of history in their blood here and are only too happy to pass so much information on. To stand on the Arnhem land border was a treat within itself but the ongoing action along the banks of the river were the highlights. A small group of people per boat make this a very personal type of trip. Much different and better than the Yellow Waters excursion.

A culture filled cruise with our guide - Terrence, who shared his knowledge, stories and language with us, pointing out crocs, birds, landscape, paintings, sacred places, and shared all with grace and generosity. We had the privilege of stepping off in Arnhem Land and took some photos and saw some cultural implements. I really, really enjoyed it. It was quite special and I'm so glad we got to see and share the land through this experience.

I highly recommend this enjoyable and informative cruise. The scenery was interesting and there were plenty of crocs to observe. The indigenous guides were very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to answer all of our questions. It was particularly fascinating to be demonstrated uses of plants in the local culture. I came away from the cruise feeling honored that I was able to gain some insight in to how an ancient culture is able to live in harmony with the land.

This cruise is run very professionally by guides with knowledge and a passion for their land. We stepped into Arnhem Land. Views are stunning. Crocodiles and birdlife plentiful and we also had a guide with a wicked sense of .
