Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Parks Australia has announced re-opening plans for Kakadu National Park, with visitors to be welcomed into selected sites around the park from Friday, 19 June 2020.

Please visit website to confirm which sites you will be able to enjoy during your next trip to Kakadu.

Follow the old vehicle track past Yurmikmik lookout to Kurrundie Creek, then follow the creek upstream to Kurrundie Falls. At this spectacular place you may see ngalmirla-mirla (peregrine falcon) flying from the cliffs.
Also keep an eye out for barrk (black wallaroo) amongst the rocks.

Follow the creek downstream through more falls to the South Alligator River. Saltwater crocodiles live in the river so do not swim there. Return to the carpark by following Motor Car Creek to the old bridge and vehicle track.
