Kakadu sites and tours open for dry season

14 June 2022

Kakadu National Park’s 2022 Seasonal Ranger Program gets underway this Saturday, 11 June.
Enjoy a range of Bininj-led activities at selected visitor sites throughout the World Heritage area this dry season, including rock art tours, language lessons, traditional painting workshops and wetland walks.
Kakadu National Park Interpretation Project Officer Adrian Buman said the Seasonal Ranger Program would run until late September with young Indigenous rangers presenting activities with the support of Traditional Owners.
“Kakadu’s annual Seasonal Ranger Program gives visitors a chance to get a much deeper experience of Kakadu and what this Country means to Bininj,” Mr Buman said.
“This year we have a new event on the program to connect people to traditional language. For the first time visitors will be able to book a language lesson at the Bowali Visitor Centre through the Kakadu National Park website and learn from local Aboriginal people and linguists from the Bininj Kunwok Regional Language Centre in Jabiru.
“Meanwhile rock art tours will take place at Nunguluwurr and Ubirr while experienced tour guide and Traditional Owner, Victor Cooper, will host wetland walks that take visitors on a journey through Kakadu’s seasons.”
Visitor campgrounds in Kakadu are opening up for the dry season, with Merl, Djarradjin (Muirella Park) and Mardukal now open.
The pristine Maguk waterfall and the nearby Maguk campground is also open for visitors with bookings accepted on a first come, first served basis.
Jim Jim, Twin Falls and Bilkbilkmi are all expected to open during June 2022. We encourage all visitors to check the Kakadu Access Report for updates on key sites.
Bookings for the 2022 Seasonal Ranger Program can be made through the Kakadu National Park website.
