Rivers down and cruises cancelled as Kakadu National Park swelters through one of its driest wet seasons on record
The World Heritage-listed Kakadu National Park is suffering through one of its driest wet seasons on record.
A powerful band of severe thunderstorms swept through Townsville on Monday evening, with rain rates in excess of 100mm per hour.
After a brief monsoonal burst of rain at the beginning of January for central parts of the Northern Territory, the Top End continues to miss out on the heavy falls.
