Photos of the day are all about cruising boat found while exploring Barrack Street Jetty in Perth. The jetty itself has connecting cruises between Perth and Fremantle which made the travel easy coming between the two city. Aside from mode of transportation, it is another way to experience Swan River and to appreciate the beauty of nature that surrounds the river itself. These photos are part of Perth and Surround Tour October 2016.

Life Of Others : Lake Argyle – The Freshie

Life Of Others (Post#16) : Lake Argyle – The Freshie

Australian are known to make informal words and used to shorten long word or group of words. The group of words that they were able to made a colloquial word is “Freshwater crocodiles” which they called it as “Freshie”. During the cruising activity in Lake Argyle, we had a chance to  see and enjoy from the boat the sightings of the “Freshie”. This type of crocodiles are said to be safe for the people. The advised is just avoid them as they may bite because of self-defense. These photos are part of Day 2 (Judbarra/Lake Argyle) of 9 Days Darwin to Broome Overland Adventure Tour October 2016.

Freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni or Crocodylus johnstoni), also known as the Australian freshwater crocodile, Johnstone’s crocodile or colloquially as freshie, is a species of crocodile endemic to the northern regions of Australia

Transportation (Post#6) : Strahan – Cruising Boats

Because Strahan became the gateway of Tasmania’s World Heritage Wild Rivers National Park, cruising boats are common to see since the town converted its major industry from mining to tourism. The photo is part of Tasmania Adventure Photo Collection June 2013.
