East Alligator River Crossing
aka Cahills Crossing
Northern Territory
Australia
Ford across East Alligator River where dangerous salt water crocodiles may be seen close – up or more safely from the track of the Manngarre Walk through a monsoon vine forest.
These photos were taken many years ago
in the Northern Territory
on a trip Dh and I took in 1992
We drove from Melbourne to Adelaide
where we hitched a ride
(both for us and the car)
on The Ghan to Alice Springs
– it only went that far then-
and made our way on up the Stuart Highway to Darwin
We came home slowly down ‘the track’
visiting as much as we could along the way

Came across Cahills Crossing one day but didn’t venture across
As the water is tidal and deceptive
its higher than you think
and the mention of ‘swimming handbags’
on signs puts me off anything

Away from home for over a month
– it was a ‘big birthday trip’ for me –
we had a marvellous time
and will do it all again one day
