Kakadu National Park

Kakadu is Australia’s largest national park, covering a staggering 20,000 sq km. With that much land to cover, and so many out-of-this world sights to take in, planning your trip can be confusing.

Our itineraries have been designed by people who live and work in Kakadu, and have helped thousands of visitors get the most out of their holiday.

We’ll make sure you tick off all the iconic sites and experiences. You’ll see the world-class rock art, walk through pristine bushland and absorb the true spirit of the land.

Kakadu is not something that should be crammed into a day! It’s a remote wilderness that should be savoured – Kakadu will change you.

Tip: The traditional owners recognise six seasons in Kakadu. But for trip-planning purposes it’s best to break them into the dry season (April to October) and tropical summer (November to March).
