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.
The Gunlom walking track to the lookout and pools above the falls is closed at the request of the Traditional Owners until further notice.
Please do not attempt to access these areas.
Please check the access report for the access status of the Gunlom plunge pool, day use area and campground.
Thank you for your understanding.
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.
Gunlom’s campground facilities provide for a comfortable stay and each morning you’ll wake to the call of lorikeets, honey eaters, galahs and kookaburras.
If you’re up bright and early, try the 2.5 km return walk leading to Murrill Billabong and the South Alligator River.
