Print Description

At the northern tip of Northern Territory, Australia, the Garig Gunak Barlu National Park, as shown in this image offered by Customaps, spans the entire Cobourg Peninsula. The park also includes the surrounding waters of the Van Diemen Gulf and the Arafura Sea. Diverse habitats - from coral reefs, to rainforests, to wetlands - are scattered across the park, which protects six different kinds of sea turtle and the largest wild herd of an Indonesian species of cattle, which is endangered in its native habitat.

This image of Garig Gunak Barlu National Park and the surrounding waters was captured by NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite on August 8, 2015. Though it looks like an island, the peninsula is a narrow strip of land deeply carved by numerous bays, especially in the north, where white, sandy beaches create a bright perimeter. The southern coastline is dominated by mangrove forests, which appear deep green in the image, interspersed with sand and mudflats, which appear white. The coastal waters are filled with sediment churned up by tides and stream outflow; the swirling sediment steaks the blue waters with white ribbons. The dominant vegetation type on the peninsula is open eucalyptus woodland. The openness of the woodland means that the peninsula isn’t blanketed with green; the reddish color of much of the landscape is from the soil.
