Kakadu park passes
Kakadu has a seasonal pricing structure, with lower prices during our tropical summer from November to May.
100% of revenue is invested back into the park.
School groups and media famil tours can apply for a fee exemption.Find out about group exemptions
Where your money goes
100% of park pass revenue is invested directly back into the park.
This helps to provide the visitor services and facilities you enjoy, preservation of the World Heritage environment and cultural sites, as well as payments to the traditional owners, supporting their homelands, training, and business development.
The Kakadu park pass only contributes 7% to the running of Kakadu with the remaining funding coming from the Commonwealth Government.
