Big Wet, The


The Big Wet is a striking visual record of a particular wet season in the tropical north of Australia. It starts with the last days of the dry in September and concludes with the first fires in April.

For the Salt-Water Crocodile and Magpie Goose it is a time to breed; for Agile Wallabies and other small marsupials it can be a time of stress as they are forced to find shelter from the floods.

Featured throughout the film is the majestic scenery of Kakadu and Arnhem Land.
