Fogg Dam is located outside Kakadu National Park in NT, Australia in the western part of the Adelaide River floodplain. It is an area of great significance to the local Limilngan-Wulna Aboriginal people. Fogg Dam is also a remnant of early attempts to produce rice on the Adelaide River flood plains. Today it provides an important refuge for wildlife.
What makes Fogg Dam so interesting is its diverse habitat and wildlife all within easy walking distance. The monsoon and eucalypt forest, open scrub land, melaleuca woodland, floodplain and open water attract significant numbers of birds, reptiles, mammals and marsupials. It is said to have the greatest predator biomass known in the world. Sedges, grasses, pandanus and waterlilies can be seen seasonally in the floodplain. Lotus lilies and grass islands feature in the water.


Private collection, Melbourne
