Easy track
Starting from the carpark at the end of Anbangbang Billabong Track (paved road), this walk takes you on a circuit around the Anbangbang Billabong, exploring the savanna woodlands of Kakadu National Park along the way. ‘Billabong’ is an Australian term for ‘oxbow lake’, which is the body of water left behind when a stream/river no longer flows there. This particular billabong features a lively paperbark forest, where you can spot wallabies grazing. The area is home to many bird species such as comb-crested jacanas and red-tailed black cockatoos. Remember to bring some food and have a lovely picnic at one of the picnic tables provided throughout the track. Lift your head up every once in a while to not miss the stunning views of Burrungkuy (Nourlangie). Keep an eye out for crocodiles. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
