Description

Djukbinj (pronounced jook-binj) National Park has a scenic drive through a floodplain network of billabongs, from Scotts Creek through to Twin Billabong. The drive is approximately 24 kms one way. The park protects a major breeding ground for magpie geese, herons and egrets. The wetland has cultural and ecological values so is classified as having national importance. The park is part of the Adelaide River catchment, which is one of several connected catchments that make up the Top End coastal wetland regions. This area is a traditional hunting ground for Limilngan people, who also manage the park in partnership with Parks and Wildlife. Bird watching and photography are popular activities during the Dry Season. You can also enjoy the unique cultural drive from Scotts Creek to Twin Billabong. Ninety percent of the annual rainfall occurs between December and March. Access during this time is quite limited. Better road access and cooler conditions makes between May and October the best time to visit. No Swimming - Saltwater Crocodiles inhabit the Park. Stay clear of the waters edge and heed all warning signs. Pets are not permitted in this Park. No camping or overnight parking.

Great drive for birdlife. Dirt road but not too bad.

Very dry, fish at White Rock but didn't see what they were. Saw some birds and a couple of Jabiru. Exit same way as entry.

Billabongs don't have much water or birdlife. Probably better closer to the wet and at sunrise/sunset. Still a nice little side trip. Worth the drive I reckon.
