That sounds the exact opposite to me.
The dictionary definition of billabong sounds like a distributary but instead of going to the sea it goes nowhere. Not at all like the diagram in your OP, where the sediment buildup has basically converted a fork in the river to a tributary of the river (assuming the new tributary is still fed by underground streams and such, otherwise it would dry up.)



Gee....is there a riverologist in the house? We need a professional to weigh in here.
