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.

This small pristine waterfall is a favourite in the tropical summer when Kakadu’s larger falls tend to be inaccessible.

Surrounded by monsoon forest it remains one of Kakadu’s hidden gems despite being heavily photographed and featured in travel magazines for its beauty.

Although it’s a bit of a trek at 7.5 kms return visitors find it well worth the effort. Head for the Yurmikmik walks to venture out to this Kakadu jewel.

Along the walk look out for wallaroos and listen for the chorus of birds.

Motor Car Falls isn't open right now.

Current status: Temporary closure due to heavy rainfall and the increased risk of flash flooding.
