[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the reasons for Kakadu National Park, in the Northern Territory, being world heritage listed is for its extensive wetlands which get inundated each year by monsoonal rains that support massive bird life with birds coming from the south of Australia and from distant parts of Asia to breed and feed. They are also home to the Salt Water crocodile meaning that you canít wander just anywhere. Seeing the extent of the wetlands is difficult from land so to see them to full advantage I took a helicopter flight out of Jabiru in the eastern part of the park. Here is one of my wetland photos taken from the helicopter (I choose no door for taking better photos). The photo shows 4 of the features of Kakadu - wetlands, eucalypt forest, escarpment and rocky outliers.
