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.

A lovely stroll through open woodland habitat. The best time to do this walk is in the early morning or late afternoon to enjoy Kakadu’s birdlife.


Families of kaldurrk (blue-winged kookaburras) noisily advertise their presence first thing in the morning and late in the day. Keep an eye out for rakul (partidge pidgeon) wandering around on the woodland floor. Kornobolo (agile wallabies) and dalkken (dingos) can often be seen as well.

The botanically inclined will notice several species of eucalypts, bloodwoods, sand palms and liniment trees like turkey bush.
