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.
Kakadu is part of Australia’s timeless north – a land of amazing contrasts. While you’re here, why not visit some nearby attractions?
Arnhem Land borders Kakadu at the top right of the park beyond Cahills Crossing. It’s a beautiful and remote area, with rugged coastlines and outstanding natural beauty.
While you’re there, we highly recommend a visit to Injalak Arts Centre to see work by local artists and weavers. Injalak offers visitors a precious glimpse into a remote Indigenous art community.
You can access Arnhem Land on a guided tour, or drive yourself through the stunning landscape. Before entering Arnhem Land, you’ll need to apply for a permit from the Northern Land Council (call 08 8920 5100).
