Areas of the park closed for cultural reasons
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.
We are writing to advise that traditional owners of Kakadu National Park have requested that areas of the park be closed for cultural reasons, following the passing of a traditional owner.
**Ubirr, Merl campground, Burrungkuy (Nourlangie), Anbangbang and Narwurlandja will be closed from today, Thursday 5 December and will reopen at 9.00 am on Monday 9 December 2019. **
Also included are Manggarre rainforest walk, Bardedjilidji walk, Cahills Crossing viewing platform and both the East Alligator River upstream boat ramp and downstream boat ramps.
