    Default New Location Guide: Corroboree Billabong (Mary River Wetlands, Arnhem Land)

    I have added a New Location Guide on the Corroboree Billabong (Mary River Wetlands, Arnhem Land), including Scott creek and Fogg Dam. Can be viewed here.

    I still need to work on a map.

    It wasn't in September 2016, it was bone dry except for a small puddle near the lookout on the far side of the embankment. Hopefully it's back to normal this coming September because we're going there again.

    Has been a bumper wet season, you shouldn't be disappointed.

    Thanks for the current images of the terrain Michael. It looks a lot wetter than the mud puddle that we experienced after a failed wet season last year. Looking forward to our visit in a few months time. Apparently our visit coincided with a once in 25 year dry event. We particularly enjoyed the Rainbow Pittas in the surrounding forest.

    I corrected a typo this morning on the Guide, it also changed the formatting. It's a jumbled mess at the moment, so I have asked the Admin's to restore the previous version.
