Top Attractions

Kakadu draws hundreds of thousands of visitors per year. The top 3 tourist favorites are:


Saltwater crocodiles

Many adults are 4 to 5 meters (13 to 16 feet) in length. Some have killed unsuspecting tourists. No need to be alarmed if you adhere to the signs warning you not to swim in certain lakes, pools and rivers where the dangerous crocs lurk. You should not even walk close to the signed shorelines - submerged crocs can spring out of the water faster than you can react.


Aboriginal rock paintings

Some date back to the ice age. Many ancient drawings look fresh because they have been restored through the centuries by the Aborigines of Australia. It's essential to them to keep their narrative art alive so that future generations can learn their Aboriginal heritage.

Yellow Water Billabong

A boat cruise on this lake brings you up close to the wildlife (including the saltwater crocodile) and the scenic mangrove-forest waters.


Other popular activities include waterfall viewing, bird watching, hiking, camping, flightseeing, and uranium mine touring.
