KAKADU BIRD WEEK takes place annually in and around Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory, when twitchers flock to the World Heritage-listed park, home to a third of the country's bird species.

During the week-long event, bird-watchers are offered a special program of bird-watching tours and activities, such as this sunrise bird-watching cruise that took place during Kakadu Bird Week 2016, guided by bird expert Luke Paterson of NT Bird Specialists.

Yellow Water Billabong is a tributary of Jim Jim Creek in Kakadu National Park, and a haven for the region's waterbirds.
