Kambolgie Campground

Kambolgie Creek Camp Ground

Kambolgie Creek camp was the first one in Kakadu National Park as you come in from the Pine Creek end. It is quite a nice little camping spot with just drop toilets. The creek runs by down the hill and there are signs that say “Crocodile sighted 12-3-2019 and 10-4-2019 – four meters in length.” I had a good night camping with a young fella who cooked up some mutton and vegetables in the camp oven. Delicious!

Bar-shouldered Dove (Geopelia humeralis)

These doves were pecking away in the burnt-out bush. I am not sure for what. Maybe seeds. There is a little Peaceful Dove in there too.

Wild Pig


Wild Pig

This wild pig was eating the new shoots of the pandanus palm. When it saw me it gave me a long look, then I turned away and got ready to run. But then it ran off, so I went phew.
I saw two wild pigs in the last two days. As well as a wild Water Buffalo. They reckon they can be quite aggressive so I did not stop and pat it.
