Florence Creek - Rainforest in the Desert

photo of florence creek  

click here for larger photo


Location:

Litchfield National Park, 50 miles south of Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia

you would think this photo was taken in a rainforest.

In reality this creek is located in a desert where the temperature just 40 ft from where I took this photograph was over 105 degrees F

During the "wet season" (Oct-March) this area receives huge downpours, filling up an underground aquifer.

All during the dry season (April-Sep) Florence Creek flows from this aquifer giving the illusion of a creek surrounded by rainforest in the desert
