Kakadu National Park

A popular billabong with local fishers and those who prefer a more secluded bush camping experience.

The turn off to Alligator Billabong is 2 km from Aurora Kakadu Resort where a 22 km 4WD track takes you through savanna woodlands to the billabong.

There are no facilities or defined camping areas and most visitors find a shaded area to set up camp.

There are no formed boat ramps but there is one boat launching opportunity.

 

Be Crocwise: Fishing and boating

  • Ensure you observe all safety signs, and be aware that whenever you are near water in the park, there is a risk of crocs!
  • Do not enter the water when fishing.
  • Never lean over the edge of a boat, out on a tree limb or enter the water to retrieve snagged lures.
  • When fishing from the bank fish five metres from the water’s edge.
  • Saltwater crocodiles can attack people in boats, the smaller the boat the greater the risk.
  • All non-powered vessels are prohibited in Kakadu…
