Kakadu National Park

Camping and bushwalking permit applications for the 2024 dry season will open on 1 February 2024.

This magical location boasts a gorgeous cascading waterfall set in lush surroundings.

This is a challenging campground to get to, taking about three hours to navigate the 60 km 4WD track to the camping area.

You can park at the end of this track and do a day visit or camp in the gorge itself. The gorge is a challenging 4 km walk from the car park through open woodlands and monsoon thickets to the cascades.

This is a true bush camping experience and there are no facilities provided.

Bilkbilkmi (Graveside) gorge is a very special place for Traditional Owners. One week per month the area is closed for their use.


You’ll need a permit to bushwalk or camp here

You can apply for a camping permit or apply for a permit for Jarrangbarnmi (Koolpin Gorge) on the DCCEEW website. Please allow seven days for processing.

For more information please contact the permits officer on +61 (08) 8938 1140 or at kakadu.permits@dcceew.gov.au
