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.
One of Kakadu’s quietest campgrounds, Gungurul boasts an abundance of wildlife.
The rare red goshawk is one of the birds you might be lucky enough to spot while camping or walking in the area.
There is a 4 km walk and climb from the campsite to a lookout showcasing views of the South Alligator valley – allow 2 to 3 hours for the walk and ensure you’ve got a camera and binoculars!
Gungurul is about 58 km from Cooinda.
