Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions apply
Travellers need to keep up-to-date with where they can travel and which areas have been declared COVID-19 hotspots, as the COVID-19 situation in Australia is continually evolving.
All visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.
There are a number of different permits that may be required depending on the reason for your visit.
Bushwalking and camping
Do you want to bushwalk off-track, overnight, or camp outside designated camping areas? Do you want to visit Jarrangbarnmi (Koolpin Gorge) or Bilkbilkmi (Graveside Gorge)? Contact us for a permit.
If you are a tour operator or tour guide you will need a permit or license to run tours in Kakadu. Contact us to conduct tours.
Media, filming and photography
