THINGS TO DO IN KAKADU!
Take your binoculars and head out to the Mamukala bird hide – a serene and peaceful encounter overlooking the wetlands in a purpose-built shaded observation platform. An interpretive mural illustrates the seasonal changes that occur through the year.
For more wetlands, venture to Anbangbang Billabong. Picnic tables provide a perfect spot for afternoon tea to see Kakadu’s renowned bird life, or walk in from the Nawurlandja carpark with Nourlangie escarpment providing an impressive backdrop.
Drivers should be aware of the potential presence of crocodiles in water crossings in Kakadu National Park — Do not enter the water and stay inside the vehicle at all times while crossing water bodies in vehicles.
