Kakadu National Park

Try your luck for barramundi, tarpon and saratoga at this beautiful billabong with sandy beaches.

There are several spots to fish from the shore, but keep a careful watch for crocodiles amongst the waterlilies and don’t wade into the water.

Kakadu’s birdlife also love this paperbark-lined billabong so you’ll likely have cormorants, long-necked darters and a white-bellied sea eagle or two to share the solitude with.

There is a campsite with a drop toilet. This spot is about 6 km from Muirella Park on a dirt road so you’ll need a 4WD.

See it: June/July to December

 

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…
