Hotel Guest – Colleen
Waking up in the Gagudju Crocodile Holiday Inn was a different experience this Christmas! The pillow menu made it hard for me to make it down to for breakfast! My brother and I exchanged presents by the poolside after breakfast, then headed off on our mini adventure before Christmas lunch. Nourlangie Rock was spectacular, and surprisingly not too hot in the morning time (I highly recommend seeing this site).
We continued on to Cooinda, and took advantage of the air conditioning at Warradjan Cultural Centre, followed by a Yellow Water Cruise. This would be the highlight of our trip – the birdlife and nature were spectacular! Even my brother (a Jabiru local) had not yet experienced Yellow Waters and will definitely be back.
We headed back for some Christmas lunch at the hotel, the restaurant was full of couples, family and children. It was lovely to see the excitement on the children’s faces when Santa came to deliver presents for them!
The buffet was beautiful, a great selection of hot and cold food. The dessert selection topped it off, the pavlova was absolute heaven!
Overall a great Christmas in Kakadu, I will definitely be back!
