Kakadu offers visitors a unique opportunity to connect with country and culture through tours and activities.

It is a natural wonderland – 20,000 sq kms of outdoor adventure, Indigenous exploration, dramatic vistas and unhurried days.

Join our rangers for activities throughout Kakadu, including rock art site talks, walks, painting and weaving demonstrations and evening presentations at Bowali Visitor Centre in Jabiru, and Warradjan Aboriginal Cultural Centre in the Yellow Water region, and at other special sites throughout the park.

Fall in love with nature as you climb looming escarpments and swim in tropical waterholes. Discover Kakadu through the Indigenous eye with local tours, glide over the wetlands on a sunrise cruise, soar above the landscape on a stunning scenic flight and join us for special and annual events held within the park.

There are spectacular fishing spots and vast wetlands and billabongs for boating and we’ve got some great sites to spot some crocs! Hunt and gather with a traditional Aboriginal guide, eat traditionally-cooked bush foods beneath the stars and listen to stories about creation ancestors.

Kakadu is a place to spend time with friends and loved ones, making memories that will last a lifetime.
