Anbangbang Billabong, Kakadu National Park

4.1
#4 of 11 in Parks in Kakadu National Park
Anbangbang Billabong is anything but a "stagnant pool of water," as many of Australia’s billabongs are often described. Sitting in the shadow of Norlangie Rock, a large rock outcrop contained within the Kakadu National Park, this billabong offers numerous opportunities to observe and photograph a wide range of native wildlife, such as waterfowl and wallabies. Slightly off the beaten path and never overcrowded by tourists, the area features a variety of habitats, including paperbark swamps, fringing woodlands, and sandstone plateaus. A walking trail takes visitors around the circumference of the billabong, with a number of convenient lookout spots and several well-maintained picnic areas. Be sure to bring plenty of bug spray, sunscreen, and lots of drinking water.

  • It is difficult to get to the correct rating. Actually, I would like to colorize the fourth ball half. That's because Kakado P such a great beautiful national park is. This billabong is beautiful, but we zoouden him best at the beginning of your tour schedule. Around the Yellow riover and Ubrirr are even more beautiful circular walks. But if you like birds keep then you should also add it to your list. You have little time then I would skip them. In the dry season the water pulls back in "this little Lake" because the environment becoming drier, pulling the birds are back in this wet area. Most vary the types of birds are also located on the premises. We saw two crocodiles (salties)
