On the way to Kakadu, we stepped in to Fogg Dam. It is a human made reserve created to harvest rice. They built a small wall to keep suitable amount of water for planting and harvesting rice. Now, the wall is just a road to get to the car park. The whole project collapsed after 10 years and what was left we can enjoy now. It is a large wetland area where birds gather and also crocodiles found their home. There is an observation platform where you can stay for hours and see birds, buffalos, feral pigs, snakes and crocodiles.
Actually there are two car park; one before the wall, second just after.
What happened later, Fogg Dam was only beginning of what we saw later …
