The Archer and Coen Rivers flow through the park, spreading over the
flood-plains during summer. Accessible only in the dry season, the lagoons,
swamps, riverine forests and rainforest attract an abundance of birdlife, among
which include the Australian bustard, rose-crowned fruit-dove, sacred
kingfisher, sulphur-crested cockatoo, many species of waterbirds, and the palm
cockatoo, a significant totem animal for the local Aboriginal people.
