|Victoria River Cruises Pontoon AND Scenic Loo! Via Timber Creek, Northern Territory|
Maybe the multiple crocodile sightings did it.
Or the 70 km (~45 miles) cruise from the Timber Creek landing to the middle of nowhere.

Or perhaps the sunset drinks and snacks, taken incongruously in the middle of the crocodile-infested Victoria River were responsible.

Whatever it was, the public amenities on the purpose-built pontoon where we took a break from crocodile spotting to admire the staggering view were most welcome.
And while they're not REALLY public toilets – use of them comes with passage on the excellent Victoria River Cruise run by Neville & Meredith Fogarty – they're undeniably scenic!
With an added frisson of excitement - and uncertainty - from the crocs that may – or may not – be lurking all around.
|Pontoon Loo Close Up, Victoria River|
After watching a couple of 5-6 metre crocodiles disappear from the riverbank into the water without a trace further upstream, the crocs could be anywhere!
And that included right under our pontoon!!
Praise be for heavy duty steel!!
But after an event-free hiatus aboard the pontoon – that is, if viewing the 360° splendid grandeur of Australia's wildest river doesn't count as an 'event' – we returned to Timber Creek as the sun set and the moon rose over the river.

With a panorama so heart-stoppingly magnificent the crocs were forgotten!
