Getting around

Kakadu is a big place. Many people bring their own car to get around, while others join a bus or 4WD tour. There are no taxis, buses or trains in this wilderness area. It takes 20 minutes to get from Jabiru to Ubirr and 30 minutes Jabiru to Cooinda, and Nourlangie to Cooinda. These are some of the shorter drives in the park, so take this into consideration when planning your schedule. It's also a good idea to check the daily road report for the latest updates on seasonal road closures.

There are many popular attractions that can be accessed with a normal 2WD vehicle, but to explore the full range of Kakadu's attractions you will need a 4WD.

ALWAYS REMEMBER - Saltwater crocodiles can attack people in boats - the smaller the boat the greater the risk.

If you are bringing your own tinnie, be aware of croc safety.

Be crocwise - see the NT parks and wildlife video
