Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge
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 to comply with the current travel restrictions and to use the Territory Check-In app to register at visitor sites and campgrounds in Kakadu.
The cafe at Manbiyarra (Border Store) is closed for the remainder of 2021. Anbinik Restaurant which is run by the same team is open daily and serving up its much loved favourites.
Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge offers small group tours exclusive access to a restricted area of Kakadu.
Packages include transfers to and from Manbiyarra (Border Store), comfortable tented cabins with en-suite facilities and decks, a three-course home style dinner and breakfast included and a daily evening tour to the rock art sites and sunset on the escarpment with an experienced guide.
The lodge is situated in an extremely special and justifiably renowned part of Kakadu, known as Cannon Hill. The area is abundant in wildlife, especially bird and marine life, and is where Kakadu’s diverse landscape elements come together.
The area has considerable importance to the local Aboriginal people, some of whom still live nearby. Cannon Hill is a registered sacred site. The sandstone outliers around Cannon Hill host significant rock art dating back many thousands of years.
The lodge operates between 15 May and 15 October each year. Owned and managed by the traditional owners of the clan estates it visits – Kakadu Cultural Tours.
