Visited this billabong in late afternoon. It was quite dry but there was still some water and birds: Little Corellas, Magpie Geese, Plumed Whistling Ducks, Straw-Necked Ibis, Pied Heron, Pied Cormorant, Egrets and best of all, Royal Spoonbills. The billabong is quite a good size...More

You can walk in less than one hour around this billabong in the dry season. Today there were plenty birds but no crocks. Yet a few Wallabies were enjoying the green grass. Plenty parking on one side.

This circuit walk is still worth the effort of walking 2.5k in 40 degrees. Lots of birds, an alleged feral buffalo and very diverse landscape. Ample parking available. If you feel up for it, climb the hillside nearby for a spectacular view of the area

I know lots of people watch sunset at yellow water or Ubirr but this place is just as good!!! Although not much water left in the billabong, there are hundreds of water birds around. You can also spot wallabies. It is not as crowded as...More

A beautiful location to explore with wonderful birdlife and plants. The walk is set some distance from the edge for safety and well worth doing. Alternatively you can just drive to a few spots along one side.

Just a short drive from rock art side...bring a picnic or just relax under the rock outcrops in the background. There is ample parking and picnic tables with grassy areas. But remember to be CrocWise.
