Kakadu National Park

Yellow Water is a permanent wetland on the South Alligator flood plain. In the dry season, cruises take visitors to see saltwater crocodiles and magnificent waterbirds: comb-crested jacanas, brolgas, herons and magpie geese, and azure and little kingfishers perching in the trees. The escarpment country, such as that at Nourlangie and Ubirr and the lesser-visited Gunlom Escarpment, is home to black wallaroos, short-eared rock wallabies, the Oenpelli rock python, and birds like chestnutquilled rock pigeons and white-throated grass wrens. Species of the savannah woodlands and monsoon rainforests can be seen along Gungarre Walk from Mamukala and Manngarre Monsoon Forest Walk near Ubirr.
