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.

Mary River Wilderness Retreat is the ideal location to be based and explore.

The retreat runs bus tours of Kakadu each week through Top End Bus Tours - from Darwin, through to Fogg Dam, Corroboree Billabong, the Bowali Visitor Centre, Ubirr Rock, Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) and Litchfield, and to Florence and Wangi Falls.

Set on 900 acres of national park along the Mary River between Darwin and Kakadu, guests will be based at the retreat in a comfortable bungalow with air conditioning, ceiling fans and en-suites (unlike other tours there is no need to pack each day and you sleep in the same bed each night) and meals are prepared by an on-site chef.

The four day itinerary includes a rest day mid-week to ensure guests are able to relax and enjoy the facilities and the local surrounds.
