Wetland areas on the Park include creeks, springs and lagoons. During the wet season monsoonal rains flood rivers and creeks. They swell dramatically, spilling over into lowland areas and floodplains. The water remaining after the storms have passed may linger well into the dry season and will often remain for the duration. Where there is water there is an abundance of life.
Wetlands are natural depressions along rivers and floodplains where residual water, providing an abundance of resources for animals and plants, remains well after the rains have stopped falling.
