They do a lot of controlled burns in NT, but this isnt one of them. We were caught in one of the many bushfires that went through the state in September this year. There was very little wind but 30 minutes earlier we were here and the only smoke we could see was what had been hanging in the sky for days. We were on a 4WD track that had a dead end in the bush so coming back this way was the only way out.
This is called the Lost City at Limmen NP.
Flooded Paperbark (Melaleuca) forrest at Flying-fox Swamp, Lorella Springs.
