Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions

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 respectful closure of Ubirr in Kakadu National Park has been extended following the passing of senior Murrwan-Uringangk traditional owner, Mr M. Na-Gangila Bangalang.

The Director of National Parks supports the extension request which was made by the Northern Land Council on behalf of traditional owners.

The current closure extension is in place through to 11.59 pm Sunday 20 June 2021.

The Northern Land Council will continue to consult with traditional owners and seek their views on an appropriate time to re-open the site.
