This was our third visit to the Kakadu. This time we had hired a 4wd camper so we were able to get into more places. If you want to explore the Kakadu properly, you will need a 4wd or take tours. There are nice gorges,...More

Kakadu is simply stunning. We visited in dry season but it was still lush a green, loads of birds, wildlife and crocs. Can only imagine how it transforms in wet season. Visit Nourlangie and Ubirr for sacred rock art and visit Gunlom Falls and Majuk...More

Lots of stuff to do here and lots of animals. Nice walks, amazing rock art and beautiful scenery. Plan at least 2 days, but of course you can always stay longer.

We camped with a self drive tour and saw some amazing places. Camped at Merl campground & we were eaten alive by mosquitoes..... take the “bushman’s” because the natural oils did not clear them at all. The Aboriginal art made it worthwhile though. Thereafter, we...More

Avoid school holidays if you can but bush camps are wonderful and cheap instead of caravan parks. Bring DEET insect spray as mosquitos are fierce at sunset and sunrise...which is when you want to take photos or be about walking the tracks. Lots of crocodiles...go...More

Kakadu is a definite place to have on your bucket list, waterfalls, ancient artwork and an overall feeling of serenity

I will be traveling to Darwin next week from the US. Unfortunately, I only have 5 days in Darwin so can only allow myself a day trip to Kakadu. I know that is not ideal at all, but I figure it’s best to see it for a few hours rather than nothing at all. Unfortunately we don’t get enough vacation days over here in the US. I was looking at tour options from Darwin however I consider myself a fairly advanced hiker and am concerned I might be disappointed as I want to spend most of my time on walks. I will have access to a 4WD vehicle during my stay, so I am considering driving myself. I am most interested in Gunlom and Jim Jim falls, however I am wondering the feasibility of getting to these in only one day. Are there any other walks closer to Darwin to offer similar experiences (moderate/difficult)? What regions would those be in? Can I drive straight do the walks or is there a centralized entrance I need to find and enter through? Basically, is it feasible to do a moderate difficulty hike in one day, self-driving, and if so, which would you recommend? Or, am I better off doing a guided tour with the easier walks? Any advice is appreciated. I really want to work Kakadu into my trip but I also know the time constraints I’m working under won’t do as must justice as I’d like.

Sorry I can be of no help really as most of kakadu was closed when we went in April - really disappointing. Litchfield is much nearer Darwin and we enjoyed a day there.
