Tourists overrun with crocs after exploring Arnhem Land

Tourists overrun with crocs after exploring Arnhem Land

Video has captured the moment tourists found themselves surrounded by saltwater crocodiles in Cahills Crossing in Arnhem Land.

The crossing, which is three hours east of Darwin, provides the only road access point between Arnhem Land and Kakadu National Park.

Kimberley Off-Road Adventure Tours posted the video, saying that the crocs came out of the water as the tide changed.

“There were over 30 salties in there,” the post read.

“This car went through after us and had a bit of trouble with the peak hour traffic.”

The crossing is considered the most dangerous bodies of water in Australia due to dangerous water flow capable of turning over cars as well as the large amount of crocodiles calling the area home.

Each year, dozens of drivers attempt to travel over the submerged crossing, but end up being washed away.
