Anbangbang Billabong

Kakadu, Australia

Kakadu National Park is located in the top end of the Northern Territory, about 150km / 95mi from the capital Darwin. Kakadu is an untamed, mostly unpopulated land the size of a small country. It's world renowned for it's wildlife. The large wetlands attract many migratory birds and both freshwater as estaurine crocodiles inhabit Kakadu's waters. Many endangered species can be found within Kakadu's borders and some species are yet to be discovered.

The landscapes of Kakadu know dramatic seasonal changes. With the top end of the Northern Territory having a tropical climate, the area has distinct dry and wet seasons. In the wet, many parts of Kakadu become flooded and waterfalls are roaring. Spectacular tropical thunderstorms occur and everything is green and full of life. During the dry, water recedes and waterfalls disappear. Waterbirds and crocodiles retreat to some of the few remaining water bodies.

This photograph was taken on the edge of Anbangbang Billabong, with a view over Burrunggui, formerly known as Nourlangie Rock.
