Kakadu National Park

A really pretty wetlands fishing spot with a good chance of catching a barra.

This is a popular spot with young and old alike, and the boat ramp is at the campground so you’re all set for a family bonding trip and a delicious cook-up at the end of a day out on the water!

Turn off the Kakadu Highway onto the Jim Jim Billabong Road. There’s about 3 km of dirt road on the way there (4WD recommended).

See it: April/May to November

Jim Jim Billabong isn't open right now.

Be Crocwise: Fishing and boating

  • Ensure you observe all safety signs, and be aware that whenever you are near water in the park, there is a risk of crocs!
  • Do not enter the water when fishing.
  • Never lean over the edge of a boat, out on a tree limb or enter the water to retrieve snagged lures.
  • When fishing from the bank fish five metres from the water’s edge.
  • Saltwater crocodiles can attack people in boats, the smaller the boat the greater the risk.
  • All non-powered vessels are prohibited in Kakadu.
