Kakadu Tourism

Adventure and Outdoors Tours

Yellow Water Billabong, Kakadu’s most famous wetland, is located at the end of Jim Jim Creek, a tributary of the South Alligator River. The river system, which is the largest in Kakadu, contains extensive wetlands that include river channels, floodplains and backwater swamps.

The wildlife – About one third of Australia’s bird species are represented in Kakadu National Park, with at least 60 species found in the wetlands. Whistling Ducks and Magpie Geese are the most abundant.

The experience – Yellow Water Cruises, winner of the 2012 NT Brolga Tourism Award and 2012 Qantas Australian Tourism Award for Major Tour and/or Transport Operators, operates exclusively on Yellow Water Billabong. It operates year round and provides up to six cruises a day of 90 or 120 minute duration. The sunrise and sunset cruise are very popular and advance bookings are recommended. They can never guarantee what will happen on a cruise, but every time is a unique experience.

The guides – All Yellow Water Cruises’ experienced guides are ticketed with the Kakadu Knowledge certification and give fascinating insights into how the Bininj people use the flora and fauna to support their way of life.
