Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions apply
Travellers need to keep up-to-date with where they can travel and which areas have been declared COVID-19 hotspots, as the COVID-19 situation in Australia is continually evolving.
All visitors need to ensure that they are complying with the current travel restrictions in place by the Northern Territory Government.
In response to the continually evolving COVID-19 situation, Parks Australia has made the decision to postpone this year’s Taste of Kakadu festival. Taste of Kakadu was due to be held at Kakadu National Park from 22-31 May 2020. A full refund will be provided on all tickets purchased for this event.
At this stage there is no re-scheduled dates for the festival. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 response when considering options for rescheduling the festival, whether that be later this year or in 2021.
Thank you for your understanding.

Here's what some of our previous visitors had to say
Watching the sun set over Yellow Water Billabong, eating canapes inspired by native food (thanks Kakadu Kitchen) while a didgeridoo plays softly in the background. Truly unforgettable.

Taste of Kakadu was an amazing experience and I’m so thankful I could be a part of it today. The traditional owners of this land are gracious hosts. Thank you for having us.
—Eve, Northern Territory
