Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, all visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.

Saltwater crocodiles are the world’s largest reptiles and Australia’s largest estuarine and freshwater predator.

Did you know there are about 10,000 crocodiles in Kakadu? That’s right, Kakadu is crocodile country. They use stillness and camouflage to hide, and underwater stealth and lightning reflexes to catch their prey.

Our rangers’ knowledge of crocodile behavior comes from first hand experience, providing special insights into this powerful, solitary creature. You’ll be amazed by some local tales and legends, learn the dos and don’ts of crocodile safety and find out all about the life-cycle of crocodiles, from eggs in the nest through to breeding and later life.


Certain activities may be cancelled without prior notice, for cultural reasons or due to conditions beyond our control.
