Top Tips on Camping at Kakadu

Kakadu is a wild but scenic place and it recognises six different seasons, each with different plants, climatic effects and attractions.

Adventures Beyond are professional guides for Kakadu tours, and we understand the highlights of the region so no matter when you visit Kakadu, there is always something to see and do.

A unique camping experience

Camping in Kakadu has no booking or reservation system – first in, first served!  It is a fascinating region to stay in with a great mix off rugged landscapes, wildlife and cultural history.

Kakadu National Park covers an area half the size of Switzerland, so there is a huge variety of camping options including:

- Free bush camping with no facilities

- Paying campgrounds with self-composting toilets

- Commercial campgrounds with showers, toilets, barbeques and swimming pools.

The free bush campsites are only reached by 4WD.  Wild bush camping is not permitted, you must stay at the designated camping areas.

Who to book with

Adventures Beyond offer Kakadu tours that take in the beauty of this region and give you a unique Australian camping experience.

Share a campfire meal under the Australian skies, go crocodile-spotting, swim in billabongs or waterfalls with amazing views or watch the sun set over the wetlands.

One of the campgrounds we include on selected itineraries is Garnamarr campground in the Jim Jim and Twin Falls area – after a day of sightseeing you’ll feel like royalty with flushing toilets and shower facilities.

Why book a tour

Joining a tour is an affordable option for an adventure in Kakadu because the region is very remote and transport choices are limited to self-drive or organised tours. 

A pre-arranged tour takes the hassle out of buying camping gear for a portion of your itinerary, plus you will have guidance from experienced drivers who will allow you to explore areas only accessible by 4WD.

Adventure enthusiasts with limited time, can book a 2 Day 4WD Adventure (tour code: TK2) which includes a jumping crocodile cruise, rock art viewing and camping at a private safari campsite.  

Or book an unforgettable tour – our 5 Day Best of the Top End Safari Tour departs from Darwin (tour code: WTA05) offering you value for money and a chance to see stunning waterfalls, wildlife and wetlands.  We take care of the finer details so you don’t have to!
