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 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.
