Anbangbang Billabong, Kakadu National Park
From Nourlangie Rock we went the short distance to Anbangbang Billabong. This is a large area of water, with lots of water lillies, and there was abundant birdlife. We had initially planned to do the 2.5 km walk around the edge of the billabong but two things put us off. One was that there was no shelter on the walk and it was really warm and the second confirmed our decision.
There was signage saying that crocodiles had been seen lurking near the walkway. We don't take any risks nor plan to get in the way of the crocodiles so that ended any thought of walking around the billabong.
