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 to comply with the current travel restrictions and to use the Territory Check-In app to register at visitor sites and campgrounds in Kakadu.

A popular spot with nature-lovers and bird-watchers, at Bubba wetlands you’ll see plants and animals typical of Kakadu.

Admire the stark trunks of ghost gums and slender white egrets, and enjoy the presence of Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) Rock in the distance. Explore billabongs and swamps dotted with lilies and fringed with paperbarks and freshwater mangroves.

This is a lovely walk to add to your itinerary if you have extra time in the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) region.

Keep an eye out for buffalo and pigs.
