Yegge

Cooler and Ideal for Touring

Yegge, from May to mid-June, is one of the most attractive seasons as it is relatively cool with low humidity. Early morning mists hang low over the plains and waterholes. The shallow wetlands and billabongs are carpeted with water lilies. Drying winds and flowering Darwin woolly butt tell Bininj/Mungguy that it is time to start burning the woodlands in patches to 'clean the country' and encourage new growth for grazing animals. This is the time when Kakadu icons such as Jim Jim and Twin Falls are opened to tourists and the waterfalls provide picturesque photo opportunities.
