Croydon: Where To Go / Sightseeing

In the surrounding environs you'll find savannah grasslands, low rolling hills which are rich in the historic remains of early gold mining activity.

The Gulf Savannah is an interesting region to visit all year, however, during the monsoon season, transportation methods must be carefully considered, as some parts of the Gulf Savannah region suffer from a lack of road infrastructure.
