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 more challenging walk along the shores of the East Alligator River, great for keen bushwalkers and adventurous travellers.

From the Bardedjilidji walk, the loop passes sandstone rocks, pandanus-fringed pools, and along the shores of the East Alligator River.

You need to be fit to do this walk, and shouldn’t attempt it alone.


This walk is great for croc-spotting, but remember these ancient creatures are extremely successful hunters - please stay out of the river and pools!

Along the river look out for marrawuddi (white-bellied sea-eagle), which snatch fish from the river with their powerful talons.

Badbong Wodjmeng sandstone river walk isn't open right now, but it's expected to reopen on Friday 30 April 2021.

Current status: Seasonal closure.
