We did the whole walk around, about 2.5 kms, which was great, but the most interesting viewing is between the various car parking spots just off the road. Plenty of bird life and water lillies.

Anbangbang Billabong was closed due to flooding when we arrived there in December. Decided to take the short walk (250 m) to Nawurlandja Lookout which started in the same parking area. Glad we did it. A bit of a hike but not difficult. What a breathtaking view! Nourlangie Rocks and sweeping lush forest surrounding Anbangbang Billabong with mountain in the background. Excellent photo opportunities. Weather was cool then but now in dry season, you may need to take water along.

Not much to do here, the walk was okay but probably a bit too dry to see any animals apart from magpie geese. Still okay to do but there are better ways to see the wetlands.

Recommend wearing inspect repellent before embarking on walk that took approx. 1 hour at leisure pace. Flat ground and easy to walk.

As soon as we p stopped we were treated to seeing a crocodile only a short distance away ( about 50 meters), he had his eyes on a few birds.

There were many lovely spots where you could stop to view the billabong. Even tables and chairs under shady trees to enjoy your lunch.

There is a walk path around the billabong, but a section was closed off, not sure why so people were just walking as far as they could and then turning back.

The billabong had a wide range of bird life and I'm assuming a few crocks, although we only saw the one.

Lovely spot to stop, even if you are not doing the walk, lots of parking spaces at various intervals around the billabong.
