The Cutta Cutta caves limestone caves may not the most colourful but are an amazing insight to the forming of the artesian springs in the Northern Territory.
In the wet season this cave and others like it act as funnels collecting the monsoonal rains to flow through the limestone and into the artesian basin.
The water heats up and flows out at thermal springs at Mataranka and Katherine.

The birdlife is abundant but at Edith Falls there was something special.
This Great Bower Bird singing his full repertoire of songs. (The Great Bower Birds are amazing at mimicking sounds which they include in the songs. Other birds calls, engines starting, towels fluttering are all included.)
His singing was successful as he seduced this female into his carefully constructed Bower.
How wondrous is nature.
