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.

Take this short, steep climb and you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular 360 degree view of the north of the park.

The lookout shelter is surrounded by trees, but it still gives you an appreciation of the grandeur that is Kakadu.

Set out early in the morning - especially in the build up (the pre-monsoon season) October - November and the hot days of the tropical wet season.

A great walk if you have extra time in the Burrungkuy (Nourlangie) area, or for anyone who enjoys a more challenging hike.
