How long to visit Kakadu National Park for?
Jim Jim Falls - Kakadu National Park
The question many travellers to Darwin ask is, “ How many days do I need to be able to see Kakadu National Park?”. Whether you are thinking about taking a tour or driving there yourself, the question usually boils down to a few factors. How much time/money you have and what exactly you want to see and do once inside the park.
Its generally recommended that visitors spend between 2-3 days exploring Kakadu. There are many tour companies that offer 2-3 day tours and they are generally the most sought after by travellers. Spending a few days in Kakadu will allow you to get a good grip and experience the full intensity of the park. Don’t forget, Kakadu is roughly the size of Wales and considering that it is nearly 4 hours drive from Darwin, its worth investing some time to see it properly.
However, if your only passing through Darwin and you don’t have the time or the money to do a full camping tour, there are still plenty of options available. There are many operators who offer 1 Day Kakadu tours and they generally comprise of a billabong boat cruise and a trip to an Aboriginal art site.
