Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions apply

Travellers need to keep up-to-date with where they can travel and which areas have been declared COVID-19 hotspots, as the COVID-19 situation in Australia is continually evolving.

All visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.

This beautiful billabong behind Cooinda is a great spot to land famous Kakadu species barramundi and saratoga.

Settle beneath the overhanging paperbarks and marvel at the water so clear you can see the fish beneath you!

In the tropical summer (November to April), a channel provides access to Yellow Water and the South Alligator River.

To stop the spread of salvinia, rangers have closed the route from Home Billabong to Mardukal Billabong.

The dirt boat ramp can be accessed most of the year.
