    A nice drive out there isn't it? Mind you, at times you can lose yourself in the hum of the tyres reflecting back off the scrub and everything looks so much the same.

    Magic!

    Always a big croc or two at Cahill's Crossing, and yet the local kids will be in and out of the water, and playing on the rocks, fishing etc. Water is right up by the looks of those pics. Tide + rain was it?

    Great spot to watch them feed, but itís amazing that more folk donít get taken. I guess itís because they get plenty to eat at that spot?
