Darcy Crocodile or North Australia Hunt

Carpentaria Bay is famous not only for its deserted nature and wild morals. This is the only region of the country where the natives make up a good half of the population. But most importantly – here is a paradise for crocodile hunters.
“Clancy drove the flock to Queensland, and we don’t know where he is,” says the famous Australian ballad. And it’s easy to see why no one knows about Clancy.

Death in Venice – Life in Australia

Crocodile lunch among eucalyptus trees

The most popular with foreigners is the state of Queensland, in the north-east of the country. It is famous primarily for its Gold Coast and Great Barrier Reef. Every second tourist arriving in Australia comes there. On the Gold Coast, the traveler offers entertainment for every taste: a casino, scuba diving, horseback riding and light airplane walks over the ocean. And, of course, here is a real paradise for fans of surfing. But an entertainment enthusiast will also not be bored easier. Here, let’s say, the town of Cairns, where almost all tourists drop by. It is famous for its bars, discos and noisy theatrical performances.

However, it’s worth a little bit to move away from the places inhabited by people, as everything around is changing. Skyscrapers and six-lane highways give way to the rainforest, which, according to scientists, has Continue reading
