These pages of Photos are of Australian Road-

Outback of Australia the cattle station
(Ranches) are so big, hunderds of square
miles each of them and a lot of them do not

Adelaide river the Adelaide river is about fifty
miles from the city of Darwin, this is the
tropical north of Australia.
were the rivers are still natural flowing
rivers,the water is half salt and half fresh.
So you have both fresh water Crocodiles and
salt water Crocodiles in the same river,so you
may ask what is the different a fresh water
crocodile will eat your pet dog but the salt
water crocodile will eat you (No joke)...
