Bird Billabong

Nature Reserve in Mary River Region

Just off the Arnhem Highway a few kilometres before Mary River Crossing if you're coming from the west is this back-flow billabong, filled by creeks flowing off the nearby Mt Bundy Hill during the Wet. It's 4km off the highway and accessible by 2WD year-round. The scenic loop walk (4.5km, two hours) passes through tropical woodlands, with a backdrop of Mt Bundy granite rocks.
