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 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 cafe at Manbiyarra (Border Store) is closed for the remainder of 2021. Anbinik Restaurant which is run by the same team is open daily and serving up its much loved favourites.

This lodge rests in an extremely special and justifiably-renowned part of Kakadu National Park known as Cannon Hill.

It boasts comfortable tented cabins with en-suite facilities and decks, and three-course home-style dinner and breakfast is included. Knowledgeable and experienced camp hosts and guides take guests on daily evening tours to explore rock art sites and sunset on the escarpment.

Wildlife and culture

Cannon Hill is abundant in wildlife and is where a large diversity of the park’s landscape elements come together. The area has considerable importance to the local Aboriginal people, some of whom still live near the lodge. In fact, the whole of the Cannon Hill area where the camp is situated is a registered sacred site. The rock art on the sandstone outliers around Cannon Hill dates back many thousands of years.

Visitors have exclusive access to a remote and restricted area of Kakadu in an environmentally and culturally sensitive way when staying at Hawk Dreaming Wilderness Lodge.

Operates between May and September annually. Accommodation and tour packages include transport from and to Manbiyarra (Border Store).
