As a result of the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation, Kakadu National Park will be closed until 11.59 pm 18 June 2020.
Parks Australia will continue to enable access to Kakadu National Park for residents of the park and surrounding Aboriginal communities, essential services, and those working in the community.
If you are not up to the long walks, Boulder Creek is a nice wet season walk where you may find banded fruit doves and spangled drongos. Take a refreshing dip in the rock pools in the gorge. Plum Tree Creek near the start of this walk is just a sandy creek bed during the dry season. It is named after mindu, the billygoat plum. Birn-birndok (striated pardalotes) and wirrirtwirrirt (rainbow bee-eaters) nest in the banks of this creek.
After passing through open woodland the track leads to Boulder Creek, which is lined with a monsoon forest. Follow the markers over the boulders across the creek and back to the carpark, or detour to the Yurmikmik lookout.
2 kms return | 45 minutes Moderate walk on marked track
