We arrived at about 10.30am, setup camp and headed for the pool. The caravan park is very well maintained and would have to be one of the best we have stayed at. The pool is set into the side of the mountain and overlooks the lake so you can sit in the pool and have uninterrupted views of the lake below and the surrounding ranges
The sunset cruise left at 2.30pm but there was an optional video, of the dam being built, to watch before the tour company picked us up. After the video, the bus picked us up at the front door and drove to the jetty. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the scenery was amazing. He pointed out some of the wildlife (rock wallabies, crocodiles, fish, kangaroos etc) and rock formations around the part of the lake that we were in (we saw only about 10%). Apparently there are about 250,000 fresh water crocodiles in the dam! We stopped for a swim just before sunset (we passed on the swimming but others enjoyed the dip). Champagne, beer and coke was provided with crackers and dip, to enjoy while the sun was setting. The tour was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.
We have an early start in the morning as we head towards Katherine – we will have an overnight stop at Timber Creek (yes the caravan park has a pool).
