Two nights in Lakeside National Park at Kalpowar Crossing campground was wonderful. This campsite is on the Normanby River. It is also the access point to Cape Melville. A causeway/weir crossing is the beginning of this track. The deep weir section of the river is home to a resident saltwater crocodile. A old guy who has been coming here for forty years had a boat from which he was fishing for barramundi.
He told us a story about a young man in a canoe that was trying to film a crocodile in the lower pool below the cascades. He was taken by that croc due to the raw piece of met he was dangling in the water by a string in an effort to entice it.
There was a lovely walk around the lagoons and waterways, that Peter and I took.
We didn't see very much wildlife, unfortunately, but we saw how the area would look when fully flooded by the wet.
From here we went to Archer's Roadhouse.
