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 for travellers to keep up to date with the COVID-19 situation in Australia as it is continually evolving. Read more.
NT Health also encourages visitors to the NT to protect themselves against mosquitoes due to the presence of Japanese encephalitis.
There’s no need to book ahead at our campgrounds as they operate on a first-come, first-served basis, and the on-site campground manager will collect your camping fees.
Connect with Country in Kakadu, and enjoy the landscape at the special times of dusk and dawn.
Kakadu has campgrounds in all seven regions - choose from managed campgrounds with toilets, showers and picnic tables and fire pits, or get right back to nature at a bush campground which has very basic facilities such as pit toilets, barbecues and picnic tables. These bush campgrounds are unmanaged, and some have a small fee, while others are free.
Of course, there are also a number of commercial campgrounds in Kakadu. On those sites you’ll have access to the resort’s swimming pool, restaurants, shops and other facilities.
