Kakadu National Park

These Kakadu National Park tours and tour packages will allow you to experience the wonders of Kakadu National Park including waterfalls, wildlife and Aboriginal culture and rock art.

Kakadu National Park lies east of Darwin in the tropical region of the Northern Territory, Australia. This World Heritage listed area is famous for its rich Aboriginal culture, rock art sites, wildlife, waterways, crocodiles and waterfalls. The is 19,000 square kilometres in size and was first created in 1978. The environment here is pristine and accessible and unique in the context of Australian wilderness experiences. 

Most tours departing from Darwin travel to Kakadu National Park. There are mini coach and four wheel drive (4WD) vehicle options to see different parts of the park depending on the time of the year. A 4WD vehicle is required to visit Twin and Jim Jim Falls, two of the more impressive waterfalls in the park. Most people travel here between May and November each year in the cooler, drier months. However, access is possible year around. During the Wet Season (December- March) in Kakadu National Park different waterfalls open up, as a 4WD touring specialist we do cater very well to passengers during that time of year. Both in where we can access in the National Park and also with the type of permeant tented camping we can offer at our exclusive camp sites (including fans).

We get booked up early on our Darwin tours for the period of travel July and August, with accommodation in Darwin busy and Kakadu National Park tours reaching full capacity. We ask that you book as far in advance as possible over that period, you can then take advantage of some of our Early bird specials on those Kakadu tours. For more information on travelling to Kakadu National park check out some of our helpful blogs;
