Two nights were spent camping out at Windjana Gorge. The gorge is famous for the significant number of fresh water crocodiles that live in this area. As we walked down to the creek we could see a significant number (40-60) crocodiles floating in the water.
On our second day one of the crocodiles was becoming aggressive to the attention that a group of high school students were giving it. Whilst we there looking at this crocodile, it came out of the water and made a number of aggressive sounds to tell us it was not happy.

The kids thought that this was great fun and when it attacked another crocodile nearby they were really enjoying this walk.

It was continuing to be hot and on our final day the temperature hit 38 degrees in the shade and 48 in the sun, so we did a lot of sitting in the shade of the caravan from 10 am to 3pm.
