    Yellow Waters wildlife cruise 500m from Cooinda Resort

    Yellow Water Billabong is at the south end of Kakadu National Park in Australia. Kakadu Crocodile Cruises - Yellow Water Cruises - Cooinda Yellow Water cruises are so famous not only for crocodile sightseeing but actually birding. The Yellow Water bird and crocodile cruise departs from Cooinda in the south of Kakadu National Park Australia off the Kakadu Highway. the way I explain to my client about Kakadu is a bit old fashion but I suggest imagine Kakadu National park Australia as a triangle laying on it's right axis with Darwin top left, Jabiru right at the axis and Pine Creek/Katherine way bottom left. Well coming up north from the town of Katherine turn right into the Kakadu Highway or coming in from the Arnhem Highway topside turn north-west off the Kakadu Highway 50km south of the Bowali Visitor Centre and go up to Cooinda all sealed road and about say 2klm off the highway is Cooinda as excellent local resort with cabins, cafe, small general store, fuel, oh and above all campground for motorhome hire and 4wd camper rentals. Now a free shuttle takes you from here for a morning or afternoon cruise about 500m up the road to Yellow Water boardwalk where you board one of the guided yellow water cruises. The boats around 30 seats and plenty of room.
