Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park is big. Like really big. Australia’s largest national park, Kakadu is bigger than many countries, covering nearly 20 000 square kilometres. And there is plenty to discover in this outback wilderness south of Darwin. Lands of the Bininj/Mungguy peoples, Kakadu is home to spectacular waterfalls, refreshing swimming holes and towering rocky gorges. Not to mention the ancient rock art depicting life here thousands of years ago. An adventure into Kakadu is an opportunity to explore some of Australia’s most impressive natural scenery while connecting with the incredible living Aboriginal culture.

Kakadu Wet Season Tours (November to April)

From November until April, we alter our Kakadu tour itineraries to make the most of the tropical rainy season. As the influx of rain brings new life to the parched land, smaller waterfalls flow again and trickling creeks become raging torrents. While some spots become inaccessible, other locations spring to life, offering us new places to discover. Either join our 2 Day Kakadu Tour (Nov – Apr) or our 3 Day Kakadu and Litchfield Tour (Nov – Apr) to make the most of the unforgettable experiences during the Top End’s wet season.
