I have made it back from a great trip to the Northern Territory for 10 days - there will be lots of pictures over the next couple of weeks.
Corroboree Billabong is part of the Mary River Wetlands about 100 km east of Darwin. The day stared, as would become par for the course on this trip, in the darkness of the pre-dawn day. The plan was to fish for Barramundi - a wonderful sporting fish - around the lily pads and snags in the billabong. While I managed to go that, I did not manage to put a fish in the boat - having one pull the hook close to the boat. As I have said before, if the only thing that interests you in fishing is catching fish, you will be bored for most of the time.
There was a heavy mist at the start of the day which combined with smoke from the ever-present grass fires of the dry season produced some atmospheric light.
To preempt the question - a billabong is another name for an oxo-bow lake, the kind of lake that it formed when the loop of a meander is cut off from the rest of the river.
