10 percent of the world's uranium has come out of that hole. Two more uranium mines have been planned but so far Kakadu National Park has protected those areas. The original locals have always referred to the uranium rich areas as sickness country.
So much power from such a small space.

Savannah woodlands and rivers of Kakadu and a little bit of Arnhem Land.
Some backburning can be seen. This is the season of Wurrgeng which is the end of the dry season.
Where ever you can see water in this video, it is likely there are crocodiles

This rocky escarpment is 500 kilometres long. It is believed to have once been a sea wall.

It is towards the end of the dry (Wurrgeng) season so most of the water is gone. If you keep your eyes peeled you will see flocks of birds. Wetlands and woodlands are starting to look brown so the places which still have water are green and distinct. Some back burning can be seen in the background.

The correct name is not Arnhem Land, that is a Dutch word for the area. I cannot spell the correct name. This two men are demonstrating how to throw a spear with a Woomera, although they use a different name for the weapon. The young man throws the spear from Arnhem Land across the East Alligator River (which is full of crocodiles) into Kakadu National Park.

They call her Snappy.

The video feed cut while it was flying. Didn't really know what was filmed until I had downloaded it from the drone.

The drone was fighting the wind so I couldn't get it as high as I wanted. Still, got a half decent shot of the distant tableland.

Early start to the day. Low sun to the east.
There was over 100 km of farmland just like this.

I stopped just west of the Leichhardt River East Brach. You can see the river because there is no water in it at the moment.
