Kakadu’s Early Dry Tours Heading to Yurmikmik

It looks like Yegge and smells like Yegge — it must be Yegge,
‘cooler weather time’ and the start of Kakadu’s early dry season!

It’s still pretty humid at the moment, especially in the morning when the sun is on a steady rise and sucks up the dew that settled on the grass over night. I’m pretty confident that we’ve left the wet season behind and the skies will remain mostly blue for the next few months.

Now that wet season floodwaters are receding, road crews can get out there and repair tracks and access roads, particularly in the southern parts of Kakadu where monsoonal rain over the Easter long weekend caused streams to rise dramatically, damaging causeways and parts of the road to Gunlom.

While we can’t get to Gunlom just yet, we do now have access to the walks in the Yurmikmik area again. Steve is heading down there today to explore Boulder Creek and Motor Car Falls before paying Ikoymarrwa a visit as well.

Speaking of Ikoymarrwa —  we’re very pleased with the news that we will be able to regularly access this restricted area for the next 5 years, happy days!


Ikoymarrwa — Access by special permit only
