Wildlife rangers in Western Australia's Kimberly region set up the motion-sensor camera along the Margaret River in May, hoping to record images of crocodiles.

The judgment is a final decision - reversing earlier rulings by lower courts - and could have ramifications for other federal employees who claim compensation for unconventional work-related mishaps.
