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.

Yellow Water’s wetlands make it a premier fishing destination. Glide over the extensive waters and settle in for a glorious NT day!

You’ll find great barra here, plus, peaceful companions in the many fantastic bird species that live on the wetlands – from comb-crested jacanas and snake-necked darters to azure kingfishers and jabirus.

Yellow Water is also a popular Kakadu hub with Cooinda Lodge, campgrounds and various tours and activities nearby.


Yellow Water Fishing

Jump on board a three hour fishing trip with experienced guides who provide all of the fishing gear and coaching required to attract a Yellow Water barramundi.

Fishing is with lures only so there is no need for live or fresh bait. The boat has a casting deck, seating, partial shade, iced water, refresher towels and keen guides full of fishing stories.

And if you end up catching a fair-sized fish, you can choose to bring it back for dinner, or return it to the billabong to fight another day.

Yellow Water isn't open right now.

Current status: Seasonal closure.
