Woodland habitat on the Gungardun Walk
A lovely stroll through open woodland habitat. The best time to do this walk is in the early morning or late afternoon to enjoy Kakadu’s birdlife.
Families of kaldurrk (blue-winged kookaburras) noisily advertise their presence first thing in the morning and late in the day. Keep an eye out for rakul (partidge pidgeon) wandering around on the woodland floor. Kornobolo (agile wallabies) and dalkken (dingos) can often be seen as well.
The botanically inclined will notice several species of eucalypts, bloodwoods, sand palms and liniment trees like turkey bush.
Be Crocwise: Croc spotting
- Make sure to observe all croc safety signs. Never enter the water where crocodiles are present.
