Gunlom – Maguk – Cooinda (Yellow Waters)
Tried out my drone for the first time – at Gunlom Pool – fun to fly it at last but the video was crap as I was very jerky on controls. Headed north to do the walk into Maguk (Barramundi) Waterfall – a hot, dusy walk – rewarded with a refreshing swim in a deep, long pool. Interesting that there were signs along the creek warning of saltwater crocodile (note: misnomer as they live in salt and fresh water, and should properly be called “estuarine crocodiles”). After lunch, we continued to Cooindi resort, which had a great pool, and crappy unpowered campsites situated a “day’s walk” from the toilet block.
- Sue Heard Eek you swam there or this is somewhere else? Should have thought sign should read either Human Safety or Beware Crocs!
- Elisa Muresan Yes, I was thinking: Crocodile Safety?
- Pam Aselton Hopefully you two are not trying to swim with the crocs
