If you love wildlife then this is a must! The best time to see them is late afternoon or early evening. They tend to be more active at this time. We were lucky enough to see 4 of them just before sunset, eating small crustations...More
We came all the way from UK to Oz for 2 weeks holiday and took a gamble to drive to this place. AMAZING! We saw 3 and they came out the water, we saw one rolling on its back playing and I even got a...More

Returning around 5:45pm we initially watched from the viewing platform, after about 10 minutes one of our group moved away from the platform(crossed the river via the...More
