Tropical North Queensland’s bravest will be competing in the inaugural Croc Swim at the Kuranda Festival on October 18.

The upper reaches of the Barron River at Kuranda were the habitat for a number of freshwater crocodiles with the reptiles regularly seen by visitors on the Kuranda Riverboat Cruise.

Kuranda locals happily coexist with these crocodiles and swim in the Barron River so a challenge has been put out for a 100m swimming race in this beautiful stretch of the river. For more information contact Marc Sleeman on 0427 592 203
