Near the tip of the Northern Territory, in the Alligator Rivers Region about 170 km south-east of Darwin, is where you’ll find Kakadu National Park. Measuring roughly 200 km from top to bottom and more than 100 km across, this expansive park comprises four rivers, a variety of terrain types, and a wealth of waterfalls. Bushwalking is one of the most popular activities here, and with more than 300 species of birds, 100 varieties of reptiles, and 60-plus types of mammals, it’s no wonder why. This and more can be yours to enjoy by booking a room at any of the cheap Kakadu hotels.
Where to Stay in Kakadu National Park
Whether you like to travel first-class across the board, or you don’t mind roughing it a bit, you’re sure to find the perfect accommodation in Kakadu. From top-rate Kakadu resorts for families to lodges that put you and your mates right next to nature, there are options for all walks of life.
Many visitors to Kakadu drive here on their own, though travellers from farther away generally fly to the Darwin Airport. From there, you’ll likely want to catch a car hire to Kakadu, because neither taxis nor trains service the area. If you want to experience as much of this area as possible, be sure to get a four-wheel drive vehicle. As far as the weather’s concerned, expect a monsoonal climate in Kakadu. This includes a dry season from April to September; a wet season from January through March; and a “build up” season in between, when thunderstorms are frequent and temps can reach up to 37 degrees Celsius.
