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

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).

Other National Parks

Skip across the wetlands of Mary River National Park on an airboat or follow the trail of the Jawoyn traditional owners in Nitmiluk National Park.
