Anbangbang is well worth visiting especially if you love birds. There are often flocks of pelicans here in the Dry Season. During the Wet the roadway the access road is always closed, often because of flooding but also because of the increased risk of crocodiles. It pays to remember crocs are in waterways "everywhere" in Kakadu.

Anbangbang certainly is a bird watcher’s paradise in the dry season, particularly during Wurrgeng, (the cold weather season) when they crowd the shrinking waterhole. It’s also popular with darters, spoonbills, magpie geese, file snakes, long-necked turtles, wallabies and goannas!

This was a spiritual place and one where you stood in awe. You feel insignificant given the sheer size and history.

Kakadu certainly is big. It’s actually more than 19,000 square kilometres – almost the same size as Wales! For out of town visitors we recommend setting aside at least three days to really get into the park and get a sense of the stunning habitats and landscapes. We’re glad to see you got to visit Koolpin Gorge as well. Regards, Tanya

climb to the rocks ( follow the track) immediately above, and spend some quality time in meditation above the surrounding countryside and soak up the tranquility

After going on the Sunset wetlands Yellow River cruise we were a little spoilt, this would be an extremely picturesque in the wetter season, however, using ones imagination the area was still picturesque, where we went in at the main entrance it was hard to get on overview of this billabong, but we took photos of birds etc, it was also an extremly hot day, so not really great for walking especially after we had just done Nourlangie.

Anbangbang is at its most stunning just after the wet – so lush and green, and the water lilies can be stunning. Did you see badbong (short-eared rock wallabies) coming to drink from the pools below the crevices?
