The Australasian darter, Anhinga Novaehollandiae is a handsome hunter of fish found through Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia.
This one was photographed from the boat on Gagadju Yellow Waters Cruise in Kakadu National Park, in Australia’s Northern Territory. The boat takes visitors up close to a huge range of birds, water buffalo and saltwater crocodiles.
Our trip was made all the better by the terrific informed commentary by traditional landowner Mandy Muir.
Yellow Waters Cruise is owned by the local Aboriginal people and won the Qantas award for best major tour in 2012. A well-deserved award.
