Top End Rivers

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Rivers of the Top End of northern Australia are among the largest of the continent. While many of them flow languidly in the dry season, most swell and break their banks and flood out on to the coastal plains during the northern wet season, providing nutrients and a sense of rebirth and rejuvenation to all life in the north. Quite a few of these rivers - the south and East Alligator, Liverpool, Blyth, Cadell, Roper, Katherine/Daly - have their source in the Arnhem Land plateau.
