Kakadu National Park in the Wet Season

Kakadu National Park's extraordinary natural beauty and ancient cultural heritage can still be enjoyed during the wet season.

Grab the opportunity of low season prices for accommodation around Kakadu! Plus during the wet season, between November through to April, there are fewer tourists around!

During the set season, the national park is also teeming with wildlife. The increased rainfall and humidity provides fresh food and resources for wildlife to feed, mate and play.

One place that should be put onto your "to do list" during your visit to Kakadu is Nourlangie Rock. Nourlangie is a popular site to view Indigenous rock paintings and has access all season.

However, the wet season in the Top End is very unpredictable! One day will be hot and humid, and the next day will be pouring rain. So, you need to be realistic and prepared. For road conditions and weather, check this website. But a place like Bowali Visitor Centre - just 5km west of Jabiru - and Window on the Wetlands Visitor Centre at Beatrice Hill can be visited during all seasons.

If it's raining, you can experience the most spectacular tropical storms. Just be prepared to go with the flow and explore the areas which are open.
