Anbangbang Billabong, Kakadu National Park

4.1
#3 of 10 in Wildlife 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. Arrange to visit Anbangbang Billabong and other attractions in Jabiru using our Jabiru road trip site .

  • We went there hoping to eat and take a walk. The meal at wooden tables enabled for this was impossible due to the flies. The road seemed a little unsure. Although it is unlikely to meet a crocodile can spend, so given that the vision of birds is seen immediately, we chose us shorten the road at 5 minutes and return.
