Kakadu road conditions here (or call):

Poor Andrew ! June/July 2003 I had brilliant, top of the list, fantastic views of a pair of these delightful birds, with bills full of bugs, at the top of Gunlom Falls, so I can assure you they do exist. After the series of pools at the top, the track follows the creek line. The birds were off to the right in the rocks and spinifex. Obviously had nestlings and wouldn't go to the nest while we were there, but hopped around calling and sounding anxious, so we left them in peace after a good five minutes watch.
