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.

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

This is the perfect place to stay when exploring the 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!

Maguk campground isn't open right now, but it's expected to reopen on Friday 3 June 2022.

Current status: Seasonal Closure .
