Anbangbang Billabong, Jabiru (Kakadu National Park)

#7 of 14 in Wildlife in Kakadu National Park
Nature / Park · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Anbangbang Billabong is anything but a "stagnant pool of water," as many of Australia’s billabongs are often described. Sitting in the shadow of Norlangie Rock, a large rock outcrop contained within the Kakadu National Park, this billabong offers numerous opportunities to observe and photograph a wide range of native wildlife, such as waterfowl and wallabies. Slightly off the beaten path and never overcrowded by tourists, the area features a variety of habitats, including paperbark swamps, fringing woodlands, and sandstone plateaus. A walking trail takes visitors around the circumference of the billabong, with a number of convenient lookout spots and several well-maintained picnic areas. Be sure to bring plenty of bug spray, sunscreen, and lots of drinking water.

  • Easy walk around the billabong. Lots of hoof/footprints around so obviously plenty of animals come to drink. Would probably see them at dawn/dusk rather than during the heat of the day. Nice outlook.....  more »
  • We nearly didnt bother going in here as we had just done some big walks and were not in the mood to do another but it wasnt like that at all.Plenty of parking spots to access the area by a 50m walk...  more »
