Sandy Billabong - Djarradjin Billabong
in Kakadu National Park, Northern Territory Australia
Billabong - 6 kilometers beyond Muirella Park and
on a dry season 4X4 track is Sandy Billabong. There
are two parts to this locality. A small bush campground
is situated on the edge of a shallow-water billabong
heavily used by many types of water birds. A little
further on, the track ends at the edge of the deep sandy
banks of Sandy Billabong. The enticing cool,
clear water is home to many large Saltwater Crocodiles.
A walk to the right along the side of this billabong
provides good bird watching opportunities as well as
views of this large water hole.
Muirella Park is a serviced campsite south of Nourlangie
Rock. The site fee includes a quality ablutions unit
with hot and cold running water. Immediately adjacent
to the campground are several large and permanent billabongs.
It is possible to try your luck at fishing by casting
from the bank. Nearby is the trail head of the Buppa
Walk. This 3.5 km walk traverses a range of habitats
associated with the wetlands of the area.
