Kakadu National Park

Bush camping at its best, Maguk offers quiet surrounds a short walk from one of Kakadu’s most popular plunge pools.

This is the perfect place to stay before heading off for a day of waterplay in Maguk’s stunning plunge pools. Reach the pools via a 1 km walk through lush monsoon rainforest and across a rocky creek bed.

Then head back to camp when you’re ready for a feed and a Kakadu sunset!
