Places to eat

Craving freshly cooked barramundi? Keen to try crocodile? You'll find a range of local specialties at the restaurants in Kakadu's various hotels. Most happily serve visitors who aren't staying onsite, so if you're camping there are plenty of options.

For self-caterers, the town of Jabiru has a supermarket, bakery and cafe.

For delicious bush tucker, why not join an Aboriginal guide on a cultural tour? Animal Tracks Safari is a great option.
