Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions apply

Travellers need to keep up-to-date with where they can travel and which areas have been declared COVID-19 hotspots, as the COVID-19 situation in Australia is continually evolving.

All visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.

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.

Kungardun walk isn't open right now.
