Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions

In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation in the Northern Territory, Kakadu National Park will close the Bowali Visitor Centre and the information centre at the Mary River Ranger Station until further notice.

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 to comply with the current travel restrictions and to use the Territory Check-In app to register at visitor sites and campgrounds in Kakadu.

The Bowali Visitor Centre and the Information Centre at the Mary River Ranger Station re-open to the public today after being temporarily closed due to COVID-19 restrictions in the Northern Territory.

Anyone who is in a state or area of lockdown should not come to Kakadu National Park.

Follow the lockdown protocols regardless of your current location and follow the directions of the NT Chief Health Officer, particularly in relation to the latest public exposure sites.

While we regret any inconvenience, the wellbeing of our visitors, staff and local communities continues to be our first priority. Parks Australia is committed to taking appropriate precautionary measures to protect the health of all concerned.
