Clear Skies Arrive
Banggerreng usually arrives in April, roughly around Easter, and is the season when the rain clouds disperse and clear skies return. The vast expanses of floodwater recede and streams start to run clear. Most plants are fruiting and animals are caring for their young. This is a beautiful time to visit Kakadu, with the clear air, and warm winds only interspersed with an occasional wind storm early in the season that can flatten the spear grass (which has led to their description as 'knock 'em down' storms). Easter generally coincides with Banggereng and is a popular time for visitors in Kakadu, with the accessible waterfalls and swimming holes providing a refreshing escape from the heat.
