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 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.

The Australian Government has announced that park entry fees will be waived for visitors to Uluru-Kata Tjuta, Kakadu and Booderee National Parks from 16 March to 31 December 2020.

This important announcement will promote visitation and further support the range of stimulus measures currently in place for the tourism sector, including the Holiday Here this Year campaign, which encourages Australians to holiday domestically.

Visitors will still need to book a park pass however these will be available at no cost and can be booked here. The fee waiver applied to park entry fees only. Other fees including camping remain in effect. Read more in the waived entry fees FAQ.

We encourage visitors to make the most of this opportunity to get free entry into some our nation’s most spectacular national parks and start planning their next trip. Our Parks Australia staff look forward to welcoming you.
