Parks Australia has received some enquiries about access to Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Parks, following the announcement that restrictions will be eased in some national parks managed by Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife.

Parks Australia advises that Kakadu and Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Parks will remain closed to visitors and non-essential travellers until 11:59pm on 18 June 2020, in line with the measures enacted under the Biosecurity Act. These measures have been put in place to protect the health of remote Indigenous communities and will continue to remain in place.

While closed, both parks are utilising this time to undertake a range of ongoing maintenance activities, environmental management and updates to visitor information and interpretation. At Kakadu, crocodile surveys are also being undertaken across the park to prepare visitor areas for re-opening.
