NT Health also encourages visitors to the NT to protect themselves against mosquitoes due to the presence of Japanese encephalitis.
A beautiful billabong for boat fishers. This can be a tougher spot to catch fish than some of the other billabongs so head out if you like a challenge!
There is no safe fishing from the shore so a boat is essential. Once you’re out on the water catch yourself a big juicy barra, or perhaps a saratoga – if it doesn’t jump your hook.
Muirella Park campsite is nearby, with showers and toilets, so stay a night or two, soak up country and reconnect with all that’s great in life!
See it: May to December
