Red Lily Billabong campground
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 to comply with the current travel restrictions and to use the Territory Check-In app to register at visitor sites and campgrounds in Kakadu.
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.
Here you’ll find a collection of three secluded campgrounds suited to adventurous travellers.
These sites are popular with local fishers but rarely used by those unfamiliar with the region.
Two kilometres from Aurora Kakadu Resort there’s a turnoff that takes you down an 18 km track through savanna woodlands to three billabongs. The first is Red Lily Billabong (Djunda). Bucket Billabong (Ngarrababa) is a further 2 km down the track, closely followed by Alligator Billabong (Gurdurunguranjdju).
You won’t find facilities or defined camping areas so just pick a shady spot near one of the fireplaces to set up camp.
There is no boat ramp, so you’ll need to launch straight off the bank.
