Kakadu National Park

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.

There will be a temporary closure of Djarradjin (Muirella Park) campground and Bubba walk for cultural use from 24 September to 2 October 2021.

A detour to Sandy Billabong (Djirrilba) will be in place.

In the heart of Kakadu you’ll find what many believe is the prettiest camping spot in our World Heritage-listed national park.

A vast field of nymphae and yellow snowflake waterlillies greet you as you enter the campgrounds.

There’s an abundance of birdlife both in and around the billabong. You can see white-bellied sea eagles chase whistling ducks across the water as cormorants and long-necked darters perch on half-submerged branches and logs to stretch and dry their wings.

Crocodiles navigate the billabong, peeping through waterlillies and keeping watch on the surroundings, while in the woodlands at the edge of the water kingfishers and bee eaters forage through paperbark trees.
