An understanding of the Natural World and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment. Sir David Attenborough
A cruise on the Yellow Water Billabong in the Northern Territory’s Kakadu National Park is one of Australia’s best wildlife experiences. The wetlands are located at the end of Jim Jim Creek, which is a tributary of the South Alligator River (the largest river system in Kakadu). The river channels, floodplains and swamps are home to fresh and saltwater crocodiles, and an abundance of birdlife. My cruise there was an incredible few hours, particularly as we spotted both species of crocodile and my favourite two birds – the Jabiru and the Comb-crested Jacana. Below are some photographs from that afternoon.
