Helicopter tours in Kakadu - Jim Jim FallsKakadu’s hotels are offering discounted prices and special incentives for visitors planning to tour the world-heritage-listed national park over the tropical summer.
Kakadu’s tropical summer season is the ultimate time to see Kakadu as it explodes with thundering waterfalls, spectacular floodplains and astonishing wildlife, and connect with the world’s most extraordinary ancient living culture.
Sealed roads make most of Kakadu’s prime attractions accessible throughout the summer.
Remarkable rock art can be viewed at Nourlangie, cooling swims can be enjoyed in waterholes such as Motor Car Falls, hundreds of bird species along with crocodiles and other wildlife are active on Yellow Water Billabong, and Indigenous art and culture can be experienced at Warradjan Cultural Centre, Bowali Visitors Centre and local art galleries.
With the landscape at its most dramatic, it is the perfect season to view Kakadu from the air in a scenic flight or from the water in a Yellow Water Cruise which operates throughout the season providing daily tours at sunrise, sunset and in the middle of the day. Guluyambi Tours also operates wetland tours to the Ubirr rock art site when water levels rise.
For those who love fishing, bring a fishing rod as the Million Dollar Fish competition is running over the summer with specially tagged barramundi offering prizes from $10,000 to a million dollars. Already this summer, $10,000 tagged barra have been caught in Yellow Water Billabong, but the elusive million-dollar barra is still waiting to be discovered.
Kakadu accommodation choices include hotel and glamping options at the world-famous Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel and Cooinda Lodge, on the banks of Yellow Water Billabong.
