Important Information

Making The Most Out of Your Day

Challenge. The walks on our day tours are challenging, they rate from moderate to difficult!

Nature. A good level of agility, balance and fitness are required to climb over rocks, which can be slippery with water and sand and have uneven surfaces. There are no formed walkways or hand rails – this is Nature!

Children. Children are welcome on our tours, however, our day tours are generally not suitable for families with very young children (under 5 years of age, 8 years for tours to Jarrangbarnmi). Why not consider a private tour to make the experience enjoyable for the whole family?

Information. Make sure to visit the Kakadu National Park website for more detailed information on where to stay and what to see while visiting the area.

Location. Check out our map for sites and distances.

Tour Departures

Our regular day tours depart daily from April to October/ November with a minimum of two (2) passengers.
We are available for private touring year round.

We reserve the right to alter the itinerary, subject to cultural and seasonal conditions, water levels and Kakadu National Park’s rangers’ progress with their annual mandatory crocodile surveys. Please observe our terms and conditions!

Weather

During the cooler months of the Top End’s dry season, daytime temperatures are pleasant and the humidity is generally low.

With the start of the tropical wet season around October, temperatures and humidity start to soar!

The mean maximum temperature for Jabiru in October is 36.8 deg Celsius, however, in the sandstone gorges of Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls shade is sparse and the temperatures often reach 45 deg Celsius and above.

As the health and safety of our passengers is our highest priority, we reserve the right to cancel all tours due to the weather conditions.
