Cool, Dry Season

Kunbonjdjek, the cool weather time, when dry winds blow from the East, koyek kunmayorrk, and kabokolung, the water level starts dropping. Daytime temperatures are around 30°C and night temperatures around 17°C, making it Kakadu’s peak visiting season. Most creeks stop flowing and the floodplains quickly dry out while burning continues, extinguished by the dew at night.

Birds of prey patrol the fire lines of the daytime burning as insects and small animals try to escape the flames. Magpie geese, fat and heavy after weeks of abundant food, and a myriad of other waterbirds crowd the shrinking billabongs. The explosion of activity on Yellow Water Billabong makes this a very popular period for bird watchers and photographers.
