As a stop along the road to Darwin this wide open area is a serene resing area with a small latform over the water where we had our lunch. With a good tele lens on your camera you can make nice pictures of the several...More

Not much too it but great views across the wetlands and superb wildlife and plants. Worth a quick 5 minute stop on your way to the wetlands.

Always something a little different to see on the wetlands. Lotus in bloom at the moment and if you look carefully there is a deep blue water lily in flower. Bird varieties at the moment are Darters aka snake birds, Pelicans, Egrets, Terns and ducks....More

Just a short drive off the main road. You can drive across the dam or walk. Lots of bird life, Lillie’s and wetlands. Good parking. Short walks. Worth a quick look.

Certainly off the beaten track and hence not very busy. This is great for those who visit as you can take in the ambience and wildlife. Great boardwalks get you to the waterlily covered lagoons.
