Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions

COVID-19 safety measures remain in place at Kakadu National Park. The Northern Territory Government has implemented a number of health directions to keep the community safe.

It is important for travellers to keep up to date with the COVID-19 situation in Australia as it is continually evolving. Read more.

NT Health also encourages visitors to the NT to protect themselves against mosquitoes due to the presence of Japanese encephalitis.

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.
