Kakadu National Park

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.

Four Mile Hole Billabong is a popular fishing spot for locals. Travellers are welcome but don’t often venture out here.

The turn-off to the billabong is 2 km from the Kakadu entry station where a 30 km 4WD track through savanna woodlands will bring you to a camping area.

There are no facilities or defined camping areas. Visitors find shaded areas to set up camp.

There’s no formed boat ramp but there are boat launching opportunities.

Four Mile Hole campground isn't open right now, but it's expected to reopen on Saturday 16 July 2022.

Current status: Seasonal closure, weed management underway.


This area is not recommended for rooftop tinnies.
