Yellow Water region, Kakadu National Park

You don’t have to spend much time in Kakadu before understanding why it deserves world heritage listing. It’s home to hundreds of different types of birds, thousands of plants, and lots of crocodiles and other animals. Over half of the park is managed by its traditional owners, the Bininj, or Mungguy peoples. We observed much wildlife on a sunrise cruise across the river and flood plains of Yellow Water (Ngurrungurrudjba).

  1. Aren’t those “Esturine crockodilis” awesome to see in real life, it brings back memories of when I was barra fishing at Manangrita and Millingimbi. Terrific photography Sal, envious of you both. Stay safe, Ric.
