They reckon the Northern Territory is the final frontier of Australia. If that’s the case, then Kakadu is arguably it’s cultural hub. Take the highway east of Darwin, through classical Aussie country and you’ll find yourself in Kakadu.
The region is utterly beautiful. Freshwater gorges that run crystal clear. Valleys of rock that are pastel red. What a contrast.
On top of the natural beauty, the region is renowned for both Barra and of course… crocs! They reckon there are more crocodiles than people in the NT and if you haven’t seen one in the wild, we’d recommend it. A real treat… but just don’t get too close! With all the crocs around, OF COURSE the hotel in town is shaped like one.
The Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel offers visitors comfy rooms, a delicious onsite restaurant and bar, with delicacies like Emu and Croc on the menu. There is also a mini-gallery, packed with local, indigenous art — all of which is for sale.
So if you are thinking of hitting up Kakadu for a fish, explore or more, Josh, Chris and the team at the Croc will take great care of you to make sure your trip to the region is as special as you hope it to be.
