Travellers planning Australia tours this year may be interested in paying a visit to the city of Darwin to see the so-called ‘supercroc’ – the largest crocodile ever recorded.
People who list reptiles among their phobias should not fear, however, as the display at Darwin’s Museum and Art Gallery Northern Territory will only feature the giant skeleton of the 12-metre-long crocodile.
The exhibit is part of a gallery that uses crocodilian specimens to illustrate Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution.
Arranged to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of the great scientist, after whom the city of Darwin is named, the exhibition will be open until November 29th.
Travellers who are interested in seeing some live reptiles can go on a crocodile cruise along the Northern Territory’s Adelaide River or visit the Crocosaurus Cove centre in Darwin.
Arguably the most famous attractions of all in the Northern Territory are the Uluru-Kata Tjuta and Kakadu national parks, where visitors can set off on adventure tours and see the famous Ayers Rock.
Uluru / Ayers Rock – Visit the Aboriginal sacred site which is Australia’s most visited tourist attraction.
