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.

Experience a variety of Kakadu’s habitats on a stroll between the world-famous Crocodile Hotel and the award-winning Bowali Visitor Centre.

The walk takes you through open tropical woodlands and across Bowali Creek. It’s best done in the early morning when you’ll hear a variety of birds along the track.

At the Visitor Centre check out the displays and ask our friendly and knowledgeable staff for their tips on exploring the park.
