Top End Rivers 2

Stock Photography By David C Hancock

Rivers of the Top End of northern Australia are among the largest in the continent. During the dry season they flow languidly towards the coast but during the wet season the rivers swell and often flood across the coastal plains bringing much-needed nutrients to all life. Many of the rivers such as the East and South Alligator, Katherine/Daly, Roper, Blyth, Cadell and Liverpool - rise in the Arnhem Land plateau.
