We took an eco tour with a boat trip on the river where we met Barret who is a large male croc and the smaller Rusty his female amour. Then we drove in a 1950’s jeep down a ragged narrow trail to Cassowary Falls for a swim. A Cassowary is a large and dangerous bird..my niece calls it the kung fu bird. Larger than an Emu it has a crested head and a razor like hoof that can slice you in half! Criki they like their critters on the scary side here! Luckily none were in sight.
I tried to swim under the falls to the rocks below but the force of the water kept pushing me away. I started to panic actually from the force of it but thankfully made to the other side where a few fellow travellers grabbed my hand and fastened me to the rocks. After our fresh water swim the tour guide threw some fish food in the water and a 3 foot eel came to the surface! OMG..I swam with an eel!
